Webinar details

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.
