Webinar: Purchasing Standards for Low Carbon Concrete
This free webinar is co-sponsored by the Northeast Waste Management Officials' Association (NEWMOA), the Northeast Recycling Council (NERC), and the West Coast Climate and Materials Management Forum (WCCMMF).
Concrete is a critical building material. However, the cement binder used in concrete is responsible for 8% of CO2 emissions. This webinar will explore concrete options with lower greenhouse gas emissions, and the growing number of purchasing specifications that state and local governments are using to give preference for these alternatives.
