Following the release of our infographic “Concrete Pavements make roads more sustainable”, EUPAVE’s working group on Environmental Strategy has produced fact sheets focusing on its different items.
The first document looked deeper into the high albedo effect. The second was focused on fuel consumption. The third on “100% recycling” and the fourth showed how concrete roads are more resilient to climate change and extreme meteorological events. The fifth fact sheet dealt with the long service life of concrete pavements.
The last fact sheet focused on “Sustainable Water Management“.
Water is a scare resource that we must handle with care, in an integrated manner throughout the water chain. This is even truer now that climate change is leading to wetter winters, drier summers and more extreme weather phenomena. Only through an integrated approach to water management can we win this challenge.
