About the course

Civil engineers have a vital role to play in reducing carbon emissions and preventing catastrophic climate change. PAS 2080, the world’s first specification for carbon management in infrastructure, requires practitioners to calculate a project’s whole life carbon baseline and set targets for carbon reduction. This one-day training course, tutored by award-winning industry leaders, provides practical guidance on applying PAS 2080 to infrastructure projects, with the combined aims of reducing carbon, reducing cost and adding value.

Relevant to all infrastructure professionals across the supply chain, the course explains how to set and achieve meaningful carbon reduction targets for the benefit of the project, the client and the global environment.

Programme Overview

This training course will cover the following topics:

  • Carbon legislation and sustainable development context
  • The importance of carbon in infrastructure
  • PAS 2080, the world’s first standard for infrastructure carbon management
  • How to measure carbon in civil engineering projects (tools and methods)
  • Carbon reduction in procurement
  • Environmental Impact Assessment – climate change requirements
  • The relationship between carbon and cost
  • The role of leadership in driving carbon reduction
