Holcim’s Beckum cement plant is awarded platinum CSC sustainability certificate

The Beckum cement plant has received the CSC sustainability certificate in platinum. The award provides information about how ecologically, socially and economically responsible a plant is.

Almost 50 locations of the Holcim Deutschland Group in Germany and the Netherlands can already display CSC certificates.

Every company that uses the cement of a CSC-certified location also improves its own rating – because the gold level for concrete manufacturers can only be achieved with the use of certified cement.

Project Manager Eberhard Liebig said, "With the platinum award, we have reached the highest possible level and are thus providing our cement customers with the best possible support in their own sustainability certification."

With the CSC certification of its cement plants, Holcim lays the foundation for the construction of sustainable buildings and gives downstream users, planners and clients the necessary security in their actions. Certification takes place in categories such as management, environment, social, economic and product chain. The CSC certification system is recognised by the DGNB (German Sustainable Building Council), BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) and LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Leadership.

Sustainability has many components. In addition to avoiding CO2, the conservation of natural resources is increasingly becoming the focus of corporate responsibility. As a founding member of the Concrete Sustainability Council (CSC), Holcim has been striving for years to promote sustainable business practices.
