It is well-known that cement environmental burden is important, and is the most significant parameter affecting concrete carbon footprint. Over the last decade, cement replacement has been considered has the most effective method to reduce carbon footprint of concrete. However, all cementious materials do not have the same performance and footprint, and there are plenty of opportunities for a concrete producer to reduce footprint. Development of cement and concrete specific Environmental Product Declarations EPDs now provide answers to business owners and decision makers willing to improve environmental performance of their built infrastructures.
