Introduction to the Materials and Embodied Carbon Leaders’ Alliance (MECLA) - Australia

Starring Hudson Worsley

Materials & Embodied Carbon Leaders’ Alliance (MECLA) brings together the drive to reduce embodied carbon in the building and construction industry. MECLA is determined to transform the building and construction sector to reach Net-Zero emissions. MECLA recognizes the growing demand for lower and zero-carbon materials worldwide and, MECLA is keen to explore how we can work together to move Australia towards a zero-carbon economy and position Australia in the top five zero-carbon materials suppliers.
