GCCA teams up with Concrete Sustainability Council
12 April 2019

The Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA) has announced that it is formally joining the Concrete Sustainability Council (CSC) – adding its support to the certification system for the sustainability performance of concrete plants and their supply chain across the globe.

The CSC is the industry-recognised authentication system, with more than 160 plants certified to its standards across eight different countries.

Commenting on GCCA's new membership, CSC Chairman, Dr Christian Artelt, said: "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."
GCCA Concrete and Sustainable Construction Director, Dr Andrew Minson, said: "The CSC has established a highly-respected and internationally applicable responsible sourcing scheme for concrete and its main constituents of cement and aggregates.

"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," Dr Minson added.
