Building a More Sustainable World with CarbonCure

April 2022

About the Episode 

Buildings are one of the leading generators of annual global greenhouse gas emissions. But using new technologies, organizations can reduce a new building’s carbon footprint and build for a sustainable future. To learn more about how the cloud is helping to pave the way for a greener world, the Fix This team chatted with Brad Vickers, senior director of engineering digital technologies at CarbonCure. Brad shares how CarbonCure aims to reimagine the way corporations around the world create and source concrete, a necessary building material. By using Amazon Web Services (AWS), CarbonCure helps customers use data analytics to discover insights to build more sustainably. CarbonCure is a signatory of The Climate Pledge and has been invested in by Amazon’s Climate Pledge Fund. It is also involved in the buildout of Amazon HQ2 in Arlington, Virginia.
