Quest for Carbon Neutrality in the Built Environment: It’s a Collaborative Effort

Presentation by:
Dr. Charles K. Nmai
2022-2023 President of ACI

It’s universally accepted that achieving carbon neutrality in the concrete industry has to center around Portland cement, and roadmaps for net-zero concrete have been developed, with an overarching goal to fully decarbonize the cement and concrete industry by 2050. These roadmaps involve different strategies and include, among other things, efficiency in design and construction, savings in cement and binders, and efficiency in concrete production. This presentation will focus on the roles and options available to design professionals, concrete producers, and repair contractors in the quest for sustainable concrete construction and carbon neutrality in the concrete industry by the target date of 2050. Exciting new initiatives being undertaken by ACI will also be presented.
