In 2021, construction activities globally rebounded to pre-pandemic levels. It was reported that the building and construction sector accounted for approximately 37% of energy- and process-related CO2 emissions and over 34% of global energy demand. Utilizing sustainable materials and implementing sustainable practices in civil engineering has become crucial for the sustainable development of our society.
This webinar will discuss the current trends in sustainable materials and practices in civil engineering, with a specific focus on building and construction. The life cycle of construction materials and relevant policies aimed at achieving efficient and resilient buildings and construction will also be covered.
- The webinar will be recorded and will be sent out to registered attendees afterwards.
- A certificate of attendance will be provided to attendees who request one near the end of the live webinar session.
- Please note: the time stated on this event is in UTC. You will need to convert this to your own time zone.
