Geotechnical Engineering in a Net Zero Carbon World

6th Oct 2021 11:00
Duration: 2hr

This free webinar has been designed to inform and inspire ground engineering practitioners across the industry to meet the net zero carbon challenge that has been set by the UK government.

The construction industry has been identified as a significant contributor to carbon in the environment and will therefore be a focus for government and major clients over the next few decades to reduce this dependence on carbon intensive processes and materials.  Our speakers will help identify 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.

Delegates will learn what techniques represent ‘big ticket’ items in terms of carbon, what is expected of our industry by major clients, and engage on how we can all help reduce dependence on embedded carbon through measures varying from big design changes to everyday adjustments to typical practice that will gain benefits over time.  We will also debate how the industry can be incentivised to work collaboratively towards a net zero carbon goal as geotechnical engineers and across different construction disciplines.

The webinar is intended for investigation specialist, designers, contractors, academics, and clients who are involved in commissioning geotechnical work.
