The concept of Net Zero buildings, which aims to improve the negative environmental impact of the built environment, is a key component of the discussion on concrete sustainability. Across the world, concrete is one of the most popular building materials due to its affordability and durability. In addition, concrete is often used because of its thermal mass, or ability to store heat energy, which can reduce energy use in buildings. However, increasingly concrete manufacturers are discussing the sustainability issues associated with concrete production, specifically around the reduction of CO2 emissions.
