Specifying Sustainable Concrete

Publisher:MPA The Concrete Centre

Concrete’s flexibility offers many opportunities for designers to influence the environmental, economic and social credentials of their projects, including performance credentials such as fire, durability, acoustics and adaptability. This publication is intended to assist designers in optimising the sustainable credentials of concrete through specification.

This online version now includes an Appendix on 'Understanding the carbon footprint of rebar and mesh in the UK' which explains how the embodied carbon of steel reinforcement is calculated.
