What is CSC certification?

The CSC certificate is the first global mark issued by the Concrete Sustainability Council (CSC) to demonstrate a sustainable production method for concrete, cement and granulates. Companies with the certificate meet the stringent economic, social and environmental requirements as well as the requirements relating to the origin of raw materials and method of production.

Benefits of certification

The assessment criteria for CSC certification have been adapted to local legislation and various national construction initiatives. CSC certification offers an organization a range of benefits:

  • Certified organizations meet the latest sustainable concrete standards;
  • Companies that use certified organizations will receive credits for BREEAM certification, which will give you an increased chance of bidding for tenders
  • It strengthens a company’s position in the market against competitors, since you can demonstrate that you are producing concrete products responsibly;
  • Understanding the opportunities for improvement to sustainable and responsible production.
