Embodied carbon has recently become a major topic of conversation within the A/E/C industry. This SE University presentation discussed what embodied carbon is, how it is measured, and strategies to reduce it. The session explored advances the structural engineering profession is making toward net zero embodied carbon structures, discussed how structural engineers can make wiser design choices to reduce emissions, and educated structural engineers on how to specify more sustainable structural materials. In addition, it described the upcoming Structural Engineers 2050 Commitment Program (SE2050) being launched by SEI.
