NRMCA's Lionel Lemay participated in meetings of the Committee ASTM E60 on Sustainability last week in Atlanta. The committee scope is to address the acquisition, promotion and dissemination of knowledge, stimulation of research and the development of standards relating to sustainability and sustainable development. The committee supports and serves as a resource for other ASTM committees in their activities that include sustainability issues. Subcommittees on Building and Construction met, including:
E60.01.04 – Product Communication
E60.01.07 – Green Roofs
E60.01.12 – Life Cycle Assessment

Subcommittees on Manufacturing (E60.80) also met, including:
E60.80.03 – Take-Back Programs
E60.80.04 – Chain of Custody
E60.80.05 – Sustainability of Material Resources
E60.80.06 – Sustainability Database

Lemay supported the concrete industry’s position that whole building life cycle assessment should include the operational stage that includes operational energy.
