Global commitments to reduce carbon emissions and simultaneously increase the resilience of critical infrastructure to extreme weather events have placed greater societal expectations on road builders to design and deliver sustainable pavements that are both affordable and scalable.  
 
Technological responses – and the associated decision support tools – are available to deploy tested and proven solutions with demonstrable benefits in a relatively short time frame. These include high-quality pavement materials with life-extending additives and green pavement technologies such as recycled asphalt materials which combine to offer road agencies a powerful toolkit of energy & environmental performance enhancement mechanisms.
 
This session will present a comparative benchmark of the state of readiness of the most promising pavement technologies, and endeavour to achieve a high-level consensus on the political and financing framework required to operate the transition from prototypes today to large-scale deployment tomorrow.
