The Cement Association of Canada has been awarded the first Asthma Society of Canada Leadership In Industry and Public Policy Award. Accepting the award, CAC President and CEO Michael McSweeney said it was a ‘tremendous honour’.
“I should be clear from the outset,” McSweeney said, “the progress we have made in modernising Ontario’s approach to the use of low carbon fuels in the cement sector is in large part because of the strong partnership and support of groups like Environmental Defence, the Pembina Institute and the Asthma Society of Canada.”
He added that the association has been working hard to deepen its commitment to sustainability and to move to a more collaborative approach in supporting an overall transition to a low carbon, sustainable and resilient economy.
The Cement Association of Canada has welcomed the government’s discussion paper ‘Ontario’s Climate Change 2015’, which invites citizens, businesses and communities to share their ideas about tackling climate change whilst ensuring economic growth and business competitiveness.
