Over their 50-year life, concrete roads can save more than 12,000 metric tonnes of GHGs per lane-km compared to a functionally equivalent asphalt roadway. Add that up across Canada, and concrete roads could help avoid megatons of annual transportation emissions. That’s like avoiding the consumption of 5 million litres of gas.
Innovative concrete products offer solutions to low-carbon, climate-resilient development, capitalizing on concrete’s strength, durability and versatility.
Naturally Energy Efficient
Concrete’s thermal mass can unlock enormous energy efficiency and GHG reduction opportunities.
