MKA Releases SE 2050 Embodied Carbon Action Plan for 2022

As part of the firm’s ongoing effort to take meaningful steps toward significantly reducing embodied carbon in the built environment, MKA has released its SE 2050 Embodied Carbon Action Plan (ECAP) for 2022.

SE 2050 is a coalition of structural engineering firms committed to reducing the emissions associated with material production and building construction, also known as embodied carbon, by 2050.  The Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industry is responsible for at least 39 percent of carbon emissions worldwide, according to the Carbon Leadership Forum, and embodied carbon will be responsible for almost half of total new construction emissions between now and 2050.

As a signatory firm of SE 2050, MKA’s 2022 ECAP outlines the firm’s strategy for more sustainable design and construction practices.  The plan contains two-dozen pledged action items centered on the pillars of Education; Measuring and Reporting; Communication, Innovation, and Reduction; and Advocacy and Investment.
