NRMCA’s Lemay to Present at USGBC Texas Gulf Coast Chapter

NRMCA Senior Vice President of Sustainability Lionel Lemay will present at the US Green Building Council's Texas Gulf Coast Chapter monthly meeting on Wednesday, May 28, from 6-8 p.m. in Houston. Lemay’s presentation is titled Concrete’s Role in Green Building: Transparency, Social Responsibility and Disaster Resiliency. USGBC’s LEED green building rating system, which has steadily transformed the building industry over the last two decades, has done so again with the newly released LEED v4. These new requirements are challenging product manufacturers to measure and report their performance through Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) reports and Health Product Declarations (HPDs). In addition, USGBC and other organizations are beginning to recognize the effects of climate change on the frequency and intensity of natural disasters and the enormous economic, psychological and environmental toll natural disasters have on our society. This presentation will detail how the concrete industry is meeting these new challenges head on by adopting strategies for reducing environmental impacts of the built environment. 

The meeting will take place at USGBC headquarters, 1002 Washington Avenue in Houston. Register online (registration is free). For more information, contact Lionel Lemay at or 847-918-7101.
