The AGS webinar on Geotechnical Engineering in a Net Zero Carbon World took place on 6th October. The event was sponsored by Geotechnical & Environmental Associates and WSP.

This webinar saw Dr John Henry Looney (Director, Visiting Fellow and Hon Professor at Sustainable Direction Ltd, University of Bristol and the University of Nottingham), Natalia Fernandez (Associate Director at Ramboll) and Tony Suckling (Director at A-squared Studio Engineers Ltd and A2 Site Investigation Ltd) investigate what targets we need to set, which construction methods and materials provide major sources of embedded carbon, and explore how we can all contribute to a more sustainable approach to investigation, design and construction.

The event also covered why carbon reduction is important, how to reduce emissions by measuring the carbon footprint and how the GI has helped or prevented a more sustainable solution being used.
