Embodied carbon and signalling: Important consideration or idealists distraction?

Inga Doak, Environment Manager, Siemens

Venue: Siemens Rail Automation, CHIPPENHAM SN15 1GE - Turing building, Meeting rooms 1 & 2

On driving past security, turn left at the roundabout. Park in the car park at the top of the hill. With the main building in front of you (signposted Connect / Siemens / Jenner House), walk all the way round the right hand side of this building, past the next building (ignore any Siemens signs) to the back of the site. Once you round the corner of the last building you will see a ‘Vysiion’ building at the end of the road, and the Turing Building is on your immediate left.

What does a tub of Ben & Jerry’s, a loaf of bread and a piece of signalling equipment have in common? They all have a carbon footprint and this is one piece in the (sometimes complicated) climate change puzzle. Using examples from Siemens Rail Automation and the wider industry, the talk will discuss what we know (and don’t know) about carbon emissions in the rail industry – with a focus on embodied carbon and its relationship with other types of carbon emissions management.

The talk will be followed by a discussion and buffet.

Members and non-members are welcome.
