Concrete is tipping us into climate catastrophe.

Concrete and sustainability are two words many think shouldn't be used in the same sentence. However the recent Concrete NZ conference in Dunedin focused on sustainability in the industry, and solution to make concrete more environmentally-friendly.

Neocrete is focused on reducing the carbon footprint of concrete and improving its perormance. Director Zarina Bazoeva spoke to Building Today about the company and its new D5 Green product.

Concrete is usually a good indicator of civilisation. As an inexpensive material, it has enabled cities to be built quickly and easily. Concrete, however, also has a huge carbon footprint, releasing massive amounts of carbon dioxide into

the atmosphere during its production. As we make moves to declare a "climate emergency", how will we balance our city's need for growth with its need to reduce emissions?

Cement has transformed the world, but now threatens to wreck the environment. We need to tax it, now. Cement, the key component of concrete and one of the most widely used manmade materials, is now the cornerstone of global construction. It has shaped the modern environment, but its production has a massive footprint that neither the industry nor governments have been willing to address.
