To help concrete producers reduce their carbon footprint, NRMCA reported that it has signed on to the 2030 Challenge for Products, a global challenge to specify and manufacture products that meet a carbon footprint of 30 percent below the product average through 2014 and subsequently improve on this reduction: 35 percent in 2015; 40 percent in 2020; 45 percent in 2025; and 50 percent in 2030.
