GCCA enters partnership with Concrete Sustainability Council

The Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA) has partnered with the Concrete Sustainability Council (CSC) to support a system which certifies the sustainability performance of concrete plants.

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.

Dr Andrew Minson, GCCA concrete and sustainable construction director, says: “The CSC has established a highly-respected and internationally applicable responsible sourcing scheme for concrete and its main constituents of cement and aggregates. Helping to extend the reach and use of CSC certification across the globe falls squarely in our wider mission of promoting sustainability across the whole value chain.”

According to GCCA, clients, developers and contractors can be assured of socially and environmentally responsible practices through the concrete supply chain when specifying CSC certified concrete.

Dr Andrew Minson, GCCA concrete and sustainable construction director, says: “Encouraging uptake of certification and having best practice spread more widely through the concrete industry is a win-win towards demonstrating tangible sustainability improvements – for designers, developers, concrete suppliers and cement manufacturers.”
