First Concrete Sustainability Council certificates awarded
Industry launches responsibly sourced concrete certification
Committed to responsible sourcing
The Concrete Sustainability Council (CSC) is launching a global responsible sourcing certification system which is designed to help concrete, cement and aggregate companies obtain insight in the level to which a company operates in an environmentally, socially and economically responsible way.

The CSC certification system has been developed together with a large group of the industry as well as certification institutes. IUCN convened a consultation process with environmental experts and representatives from civil society focused on providing feedback on the system's environmental and social criteria. The revised technical manual addresses some of the feedback received and aims for continuous improvement. In this respect, CSC intends to continue the dialogue with civil society organizations and other stakeholders.

The CSC certification system consists of an operational manual and assessment criteria with guidance on their application. A typical certification process includes a number of easy steps, is applicable to all sizes of concrete, cement and aggregate companies, and comprises four levels: bronze, silver, gold and platinum.

By creating a certification system for responsibly sourced concrete, the CSC aims to improve transparency of the concrete sector, highlight the essential role of concrete in creating a sustainable construction sector by getting recognition in 'green' procurement government policies and building rating systems.

The CSC is founded on November 14th 2016. Dr. Alexander Röder (CEMEX) is the chairman of CSC.
Dr. Christian Artelt (HeidelbergCement) is vice-chair.
