UK: The Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA) is formally joining the Concrete Sustainability Council (CSC). By doing so it is adding its support to the only world-wide industry specific system that certifies the sustainability performance of concrete plants and their supply chain across the globe. Developed in conjunction with social and environmental stakeholders, the CSC is the industry recognised authentication system, with more than 160 plants certified to its standards across eight different countries.
“We are delighted at the decision of the GCCA to champion the many sustainability benefits of concrete by putting their global reach behind the CSC. We look forward to reinforcing and accelerating our work with their support,” said CSC chairman, Christian Artelt.
Clients, developers and contractors can be assured of socially and environmentally responsible practices through the concrete supply chain when specifying CSC certified concrete. Internationally recognised sustainable project assessment methods such as BREEAM and DGNB credit design teams and their projects with points when CSC certified concrete is specified and procured.
