New White Paper Resource Available
A new one-page resource is now available summarizing ACPA’s white paper. The white paper synthesizes research on concrete pavement’s contributions to economic, environmental, and social sustainability. As part of our role in educating decision-makers who are involved in the placement and rehabilitation of roadway, highway, and airfield pavements, ACPA has assembled this resource to assist those decision-makers as they are challenged to meet ever-increasing levels of sustainability.
“Concrete Pavement’s Role in a Sustainable, Resilient Future” provides an overview of sustainability and sustainability’s relationship to resilience. Because a system cannot be sustainable if it is not also resilient, pavements should be designed with a life cycle approach that contemplates pavement’s entire life span. Designing with life cycle in mind can help ensure pavements enhance all three categories of sustainability: economic, environmental, and social. Concrete is a material well-positioned to address the planet’s climate change considerations.
