New White Paper: Achieving New Zero Embodied Carbon in Structural Materials by 2050

Hi all,

I’m very excited to announce the publication of the SEI Sustainability Committee’s new white paper, Achieving Net Zero Embodied Carbon in Structural Materials by 2050.

We examine in detail four transition tracks that will get structural materials to net zero:

  1. Design improvements implemented by engineers and architects.
  2. Greening the electrical grid.
  3. Improving material production.
  4. Carbon offsets.

These tracks may be combined in various proportions to reach net zero emissions.

It is available for free download at the SEI Sustainability Committee’s website:


Thank so much for sharing this, Mark! A genuine milestone to celebrate.
