Lund Opsahl submits our Embodied Carbon Action Plan to the SE 2050 Commitment Program.

Lund Opsahl is proud to announce we have joined the SE 2050 Commitment Program to reduce and eliminate embodied carbon in structural systems by 2050. As part of this commitment, our firm has created an Embodied Carbon Action Plan (ECAP), our roadmap to implementing new strategies and solutions that will allow us to evaluate and reduce the embodied carbon footprint of our projects.

Embodied carbon is the carbon footprint associated with materials and construction processes throughout a project’s life cycle and is a critical component of sustainability efforts in structural engineering. As the built environment expands, understanding and mitigating the carbon released during material production, transportation, and construction phases is key to our carbon-neutral future.

The SE 2050 Program comprises four areas: education, reporting, embodied carbon reduction strategies and advocacy. Our strategy to advance these four areas is outlined in our ECAP.
