Local Government Policies to Drive Low-Carbon Concrete

Tuesday, February 4, 2020, 10:00 – 11:30am (PST)

Summary: Concrete is the most widely used construction material in the world and is responsible for 6-10% of global anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions*. Proven alternative technologies and practices are readily available in the marketplace that can reduce these emissions by more than half.  Attend this webinar to hear about three different strategies being used by local governments to drive demand for low-carbon concrete, and learn how you can do it, too. *Source: Architecture 2030 (https://materialspalette.org/concrete/)
