Concrete Sustainability Council (CSC) Responsible Sourcing Certification
Concrete Sustainability Council (CSC) responsible sourcing certification from SGS – demonstrate your commitment to social and environmental sustainability when sourcing materials for the manufacture of concrete and cement.
Concrete is the most widely used manmade material on the planet. 70% of the world’s population lives in concrete structures, and cement production accounts for 5% of the world’s CO2 emissions from manmade sources. The widespread use of concrete, combined with increasing concerns about social and environmental responsibility, has made it increasingly important for manufacturers to demonstrate that their products are responsibly sourced and produced.
To help manufacturers comply with industry and consumer demands for responsibly sourced products, the CSC has launched a worldwide certification system for the responsible sourcing of developed concrete. This certification system is designed to help concrete, cement and aggregate companies obtain insight into the level at which a company operates in an environmentally, socially and economically responsible way. It covers raw materials and their source or provenance, manufacture and a range of economic, social and environmental impacts.
As a founding member of the CSC, SGS provides CSC responsible sourcing certification. We offer certification to bronze, silver, gold and platinum levels.
