Towards zero-CO2 production and practices in the supply chains for buildings and infrastructure – first experiences from a Swedish case study
Paper in proceedings, 2018
1. Measures/tools to realise the potential of a 50 % reduction in the climate impacts from building and infrastructure construction processes that have been shown to exist already today, and,
2. Measures/tools to accelerate the transition towards zero-emission production and practices in the supply chains from raw materials to completed buildings and infrastructure.
The outcomes from the first stages of the case study work show the importance of:
- Increasing coordination and collaboration along the supply chains, so as to facilitate collective action among stakeholders in the supply chain from basic materials to buildings and infrastructure. This will include developing a common understanding, language and framework among the stakeholders.
- Public actors taking the lead in the transformation, for example by means of innovative procurement practices.
- Establishing markets for zero-CO2 products and services, both for tapping the potential for early mitigation and for developing and deploying transformative shifts in production and practices, including: i) financing and de-risking investment in transformative technologies, ii) pricing emissions and de-meriting use/production of CO2-intensive products, and iii) incentivizing demand reduction and substitution of materials.
