Making Sustainability Concrete
The Portland Cement Association (PCA) and its member companies are committed to sustainable development and environmental stewardship. For us, sustainability is not just a buzz word, but a key element in the way we do business. The cement industry recognizes that adopting the values of sustainable development benefits local, national and global climate and environmental considerations.
PCA is spearheading many initiatives that will allow the industry to balance today’s economic interests with our long term environmental objectives. As a major tenet in our ongoing commitment to green building and excellence in leadership, we are pleased to announce that nominations are being accepted for the 2010 PCA Sustainable Leadership Awards. The Awards will honor government leaders who advance sustainable development through the use of concrete and cement-based products.
The PCA Sustainable Leadership Awards will:
- Honor public officials who share our passion for the three tiers of sustainability – economic, environmental and social – and demonstrate it by advancing the use of and/or utilizing concrete in construction projects that are energy efficient and beneficial to the community;
- Continue to raise awareness of cement and concrete sustainable green building solutions; and
- Reinforcing partnerships with government leaders.
The PCA Sustainable Leadership Awards may be granted in four categories. The Leadership in Sustainability Policy Award honors public officials who advance policies that promote the concept of sustainable development by advocating for the use of concrete and cement-based products in their communities.
Three award categories honor specific projects in three areas: Homes and Residential Building, Non-Residential Building and Infrastructure. These Awards honor public officials who utilize cement or cement-based products to achieve sustainable benefits for projects in each of these categories.
