Embodied Carbon & Signalling – Important Consideration or Idealists Distraction?
A presentation by Inga Doak, Environment Manager at Siemens Rail Automation.
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 carbon footprint is one piece in the (sometimes complicated) climate change puzzle. Using examples from Siemens Rail Automation and the wider industry, this 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.
Instructions for finding the Turing Building as follows:
- upon 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 (sign posted Connect / Siemens / Jenner House), walk all the way around the right hand side of this building, past the next building (ignore any Siemens signs) – all the way 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.
Those arriving by car will need to sign-in at security, and then as the reception desk will be closed, they should come straight to the nominated meeting room, and register attendance there.
Siemens office is approx 10 minutes away from the railway station by foot. Public access is via the main entrance on Pew Hill.
