Net Zero Concrete
The California concrete industry is committed to reducing its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions footprint and reaching net carbon neutrality by 2045. CalCIMA has prepared the “roadmap” that outlines the options for reaching “net zero concrete” without undue delay. Although focused on the California concrete industry, the roadmap incorporates and is aligned with similar efforts from other state, national, and international organizations that represent stakeholders throughout the entire cement-concrete-construction value chain. The goal of achieving carbon neutrality is a natural continuation of the industry’s longstanding efforts to consistently improve environmental performance and infrastructure resiliency.
