Wells Webinar - Understanding Carbon Reduction Strategies: The Impact of Precast on Life-Time Carbon Footprint
Understanding and reducing our carbon footprint is at the forefront of designer and builder discussions regarding material selection and project impact. Identifying the net carbon impact, and subsequent methods for reduction can be a complex strategy to understand. Wells has teamed with national sustainability consultant Emily Lorenz, to walk you through understanding the life cycle of carbon in prefabricated concrete. Wells SVP of Quality, Steve Kloos and SVP / CSO, Kimberly Wacker will join the discussion to share how prefabricated concrete manufacturing is addressing the carbon neutrality challenge. Join us September 29th to learn more.

Prefabricated building solutions, production and manufacturing methods are responding and adjusting to support the carbon emission movement. By implementing new technologies or reinventing traditional construction methods, there are many ways to reduce your next building’s long-term environmental impact. Earn CEU credits as you dive into an understanding of carbon neutrality and some key ways it is being addressed in prefabricated concrete manufacturing.
