Engineering and Climate Neutrality

Engineering and Climate Neutrality

Climate neutrality is defined as the transition to a net zero greenhouse gas economy, i.e. the emission of burning carbon dioxide from fuel fuels is offset by actions such as planting trees, thus maintaining an important balance in the built environment.

Engineering plays a key role in this transformation, especially as traditional engineering, civil engineering launches more than 70% of solutions and initiatives by the United Nations in the 2015 Paris Agreement entitled “Measures for Sustainable Development 2030”. 17 targets represents a total of 169 objects, including goals of its own small profile.

Sustainable development goals cover a wide range of social, economic and environmental development issues.

Engineering technology solutions can be provided in active engineering fields such as construction that negatively contribute to increasing carbon emissions. For example, 11% of the world’s carbon emissions come from the construction industry, which is the primary building material, such as traditional cement, or construction and demolition operations, and logistics transportation.

We are currently developing innovative solutions such as alternative green cement or 3D printer, recycling used concrete and introducing automation and digitization in construction site design and implementation processes, effectively contributing to carbon emissions and achieving climate neutrality through structural engineering applications.

As today’s engineering scholars say, technological solutions will not be a major obstacle or challenge to climate neutrality, but rather appropriate engineering law. For example, in 2019, the United Kingdom of Great Britain issued the Net Zero Emissions Act, which sets the roadmap for all stakeholders in the infrastructure, including owners, designers or contractors, to work together to achieve zero. Emissions by 2050.

Finally, the United Arab Emirates has made a significant legislative and strategic achievement by announcing the goal of achieving climate neutrality by 2050. All companies are working as a team to achieve that, with an investment of 600 billion dirhams in clean and renewable energy until 2050, to play a key role in combating climate change in the region.

Sustainable development goals cover a wide range of social, economic and environmental development issues.
