certification- what is it ?

Concrete is the world’s most widely used building material. It is without any doubt the most durable material, the Pantheon in Rome or the colloseum are examples of its solidity.

By creating a certification system for responsibly sourced concrete, the Concrete Sustainability Council (CSC) promotes and demonstrates concrete as a sustainable building material to enable informed decision in construction.
