Meaningful measurement for whole-life carbon in infrastructure: a report from The Carbon Project
Some 70% of carbon emissions worldwide can be linked to infrastructure. Civil engineers, as the designers, builders and maintainers of this infrastructure, have a duty to minimise the harmful impacts […]
Can we deliver net carbon zero? Roundtable debate
As part of the ‘Triennial’ event ‘Planning for Climate Change and the Enhanced Resilience of Civil Infrastructure’ a collaboration by civil engineering organisations ICE, ASCE and CSCE, our own Seth Schultz will be taking part in a debate on delivering net carbon zero, and the role of the engineering community on Tuesday 25th May.
Decarbonising bridges: a view from Sweden
Seizing opportunities to reduce carbon emissions through material choices and approaches that support environmental sustainability. Bridge engineers Daniel Ekström and Johan Lindersson discuss opportunities to reduce carbon emissions associated with bridges.
What can we learn from the WFEO climate stories?
The WFEO Climate Stories series is a collection of blogs written by WFEO committee members about climate change in six countries from around the world: Australian, Canada, China, France, Kenya and the UK. The blogs looked at how climate change is affecting each country, attitudes to climate change, what is being done to reduce carbon emissions, and the role engineers can play. Here Davide Stronati assesses what we can learn from the series.
WFEO climate stories: Australia
With Australia’s climate having warmed by roughly 1.44°C since 1910, it is already feeling the effects of climate change. Dr Marlene Kanga looks at the impact of warming on this dry continent, how much of an appetite there is for decarbonisation, and what is being done already to combat climate change.
WFEO climate stories: China
The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) is hosting the World Federation of Engineering Organizations’ (WFEO) Committee on Engineering and the Environment from 2019 to 2023. For this blog series, comissioned by ICE, committee members provide a snapshot of climate change impacts and solutions in their part of the world. To kick off, Professor Jianping Wu of Beijing’s Tsinghua University and his colleagues, Jing He and Xiaodong Guan, survey the scene in China.
