The Little Green Book of Concrete 2021 Digital Edition

16 Apr 2021

The new 2021 digital edition of The Little Green Book of Concrete was officially launched on the 13th of April and is now available for download. This year’s edition is part of a European precast sector collaboration, headed by BIBM, bringing together sustainability professionals from multiple European countries to update the little books messages for a new decade. The original edition of the book was published by the British Precast Concrete Federation (BPCF) in 2008.

The ‘pocket-sized’ book outlines not only the sustainability advantages of precast concrete, but also progress made by the industry to provide more sustainable, circular and decarbonised solutions for the built environment. The Little Green Book covers a range of topics including precast’s low carbon footprint, resilience to climate change as well as its benefits to the local and regional circular economy. It outlines what precast concrete can offer to the architect, the engineer, the client, the financier and the insurer by summarising over one hundred advantages of using the material.


In the coming weeks, The Little Green Book will be translated into multiple languages and accessed across Europe. It is MPA’s intention to release a UK specific version later in the year.
