LafargeHolcim’s operations in Canada have obtained the Concrete Sustainability Council (CSC) certificates for Responsibly Sourced Concrete for ready-mixed concrete plants in Burlington, Ohio, and Edmonton, Alberta.
Both plants received CSC bronze level certification for operating in an environmentally, socially, and economically responsible way. In particular, the plants were recognised for their clear chain of custody for materials, demonstrating a commitment to responsible sourcing. Other highlights included achieving zero waste water discharge, due to high recycled water use, and having a strong health and safety programme.
Pascal Casanova, Region Head North America of LafargeHolcim stated: "We are very proud being the first to receive this certification in North America and to supply certified responsibly sourced concrete to our customers We consider sustainability to be both a responsibility and a business opportunity. We encourage the whole construction sector to play its part in responsibly sourcing concrete."
