FPS Sustainability Series: Calculating your Project’s Carbon Footprint


Event Expired

This webinar has taken place


21st Jul 2020 11:00


1hr 30mins

The UK is committed to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050. But how do you achieve this on a geotechnical construction site?

This webinar explains why carbon reduction is important and how to reduce emissions by measuring your carbon footprint. The workshop will also guide you through the industry’s leading tool; the EFFC/DFI Carbon Calculator, a free aid which allows the user to assess the carbon footprint of their project.

This webinar will discuss:

  • What environmental sustainability mean for geotechnical works?
  • The drivers behind measuring and reducing the embodied carbon of geotechnical solutions.
  • How to use the EFFC/DFI Carbon Calculator to estimate, measure and analyse emissions on a piling or geotechnical project.
  • How to compare pre-project projections of carbon emissions, with post project measurements.
