Concrete offers many opportunities to influence the environmental economic and social credentials of a project, including performance credentials such as its thermal mass, durability and acoustic performance and resilience to flooding and fire. This webinar provides guidance to further enhance the sustainability credentials of concrete through specification and design. Topics include local and responsible sourcing, low carbon cements, use of recycled content, design for material efficiency and low whole life CO2.
