Purchasing Standards for Low Carbon Concrete
June 1, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
This webinar was co-organized and sponsored by NEWMOA, NERC, and the West Coast Climate and Materials Management Forum (WCMMF).
Concrete is a critical building material. However, the cement binder used in concrete is responsible for around eight per cent of humanmade CO2 emissions. This webinar explored low carbon concrete options and the growing number of purchasing standards that state and local governments have developed to give preference for these alternatives. Presenters included:
- Jordan Palmeri, Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (OR DEQ) [PDF]: “Low Carbon Concrete: Lessons from Oregon”
- Kate Simonen, University of Washington [PDF]: “Buy Clean Policy & Low Carbon Concrete”
- Dorian Bailey, The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey [PDF]: “Clean Construction: Low Carbon Concrete”
