As the climate changes there will be ever-increasing social and economic pressure to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, with focus turning to the embodied carbon in products which has thus far been eclipsed by operational values.

Paul Astle explores potential ways in which engineers can seek reductions in the embodied carbon of structural concrete.
