The route to net zero
The route to net zero is different for each material. For example, with concrete, there is a heavy reliance on the possibility of carbon capture becoming mainstream, and severe constraints when it comes to making the right choice for cement replacements. The key for all materials, however, is to simply use less of them.
Arup will be producing further material guides to add to this suite.
