Concrete is a key component of the built environment. However, the manufacture of cement-based materials, such as concrete, produces over 8% of worldwide anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions. Designing infrastructure in a manner that uses concrete more efficiently, and thus lowers consumption while meeting the same system demands, holds promise for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. This webinar will present methods for evaluating implications of design decisions on the environmental impacts of concrete systems and the potential for using multi-criteria selection processes to assist decision-makers.
