Architects needn’t take a guilt-trip on concrete


Not all concrete is created equal. Cement is main the bearer of the embodied carbon. It is quite possible to make concrete with anything from 50% to 80% of the cement replaced with something with a much lower embodied carbon: GGBFS, PFA or fine limestone powder for example. Architects should familairise themselves with the technical requirements of low carbon concrete and specify it whenever it can be used.
