Concrete is in our sidewalks, our patios, our pool decks. It supports our skyscrapers and shapes our fountains. Concrete is, quite literally, the building block of modern civilization. Look closely, though, and you’ll see — it’s also choking our atmosphere.

Each year, the production of cement (concrete’s key ingredient) emits more than two billion tons of CO2, or about 8 percent of global CO2 emissions, which exacerbates climate change.

The global population — and urbanization — are on the rise, and the demand for construction projects is expected to rise with it.
