In 2008, the UK concrete industry agreed a Concrete Industry Sustainable Construction Strategy for the UK concrete industry to be recognised as a leader in sustainable construction, by taking a dynamic role in delivering a sustainable, low carbon built environment in a socially, environmentally and economically responsible manner.
Our strategy represents progression, continuous improvement and an increase in scope. The concrete industry will continue to develop performance indicators to ensure the relevance of our metrics. The industry will facilitate further engagement with the broader supply chain for concrete, offering the opportunity to inform development of the strategy and supporting initiatives.
Collectively as an industry - and individually as manufacturers, sector trade associations and MPA The Concrete Centre - we are committed to supporting stakeholders in realising the potential, and understanding the sustainability credentials, of concrete and its constituents.
The Concrete Industry has stated its commitment is to provide the most transparent life cycle assessment data which is compliant with the developing codes and standards. This includes "Embodied CO2 of factory-made cements and combinations”.
With construction industry milestones in 2016, 2020, 2050 and beyond we present our commitments and detailed success factors based on our current assessment of technology and the market conditions over that period.
In 2008, the UK concrete industry committed to the Concrete Industry Sustainable Construction Strategy. This commitment was made by manufacturers and sector associations from the aggregate, cement, GGBS, fly ash, admixtures, ready-mixed and precast concrete sectors, with support from the industry body MPA The Concrete Centre.
The strategy represents progression, continuous improvement and an increase in scope. The concrete industry will continue to develop performance indicators to ensure the relevance of our metrics.
These are the founder members, trade bodies and signatories to the Concrete Industry Sustainable Construction Strategy.
