NRMCA Becomes Regional System Operator for CSC in U.S.
As a follow-up to previous Concrete Sustainability Council (CSC) membership news, NRMCA has announced that it has also now become a Regional System Operator (RSO) for the U.S. marketplace. The CSC is the only industry-specific system that certifies the sustainability performance of concrete plants and their supply chain across the globe. The responsible sourcing of construction materials is an increasing priority in high-profile construction projects and in public procurement. 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 as a sustainable construction material and be recognized in green building standards. Recently, the USGBC launched the LEED Pilot Credit: Social Equity within the Supply Chain and acknowledged the CSC as an approved program.
As an RSO, NRMCA will develop and manage the CSC, its certification framework, governance and independent verifier network in the U.S. Bringing on the CSC program as an adjacent program to NRMCA’s environmental product declaration (EPD) program continues to demonstrate leadership and willingness to disclose the sustainability of concrete.
As part of the Build With Strength campaign, NRMCA promotes Strength Through Transparency for member and industry competitiveness in the green building marketplace and the trends toward product and company transparency.
