This course addresses the complexity and scale of greenhouse gas emissions produced by the concrete industry and the role architects can play to reduce these emissions. It explores the actions that have been employed by the cement and concrete industries to lower its environmental impact. Market drivers that address materials' environmental footprint such as LEED and the Living Building Challenge will be addressed. Impact measurement tools such as Environmental Product Declarations will be discussed. The course will conclude by exploring emerging innovations to reduce the carbon footprint of concrete.

Learning Objectives

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the production process of concrete and explain how its production impacts greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Evaluate changes in the material categories of environmental stewardship programs such as LEED v4 and The Living Building Challenge 2.0.
  • Utilize assessment tools such as Environmental Product Declarations in order to understand a material’s environmental impact.
  • Summarize the International Energy Agency’s Blue Map Scenario for the concrete industry’s carbon emission reduction targets and describe methods that may be employed by architects to help reach these environmental objectives.
