Delivering zero carbon infrastructure

16 May 2023
New approaches to capital delivery

As utilities gear up to deliver infrastructure for a net zero and resource efficient future, it is critical that the assets and networks also represent the very best in sustainable construction techniques and use of low carbon materials. This session will explore how utilities and their partners are taking steps to improve awareness of embodied carbon in infrastructure projects and capital delivery and innovating to reduce it. Join to learn: 

  • How to ensure carbon awareness is built into decision making throughout planning and delivery processes 

  • How to support carbon impact modelling for alternative infrastructure design and construction scenarios  

  • Latest thinking on whole life carbon modelling for assets and infrastructure 

  • How fresh innovation in low carbon materials can materially and affordably reduce the embodied carbon of infrastructure
