Stakeholder Consultation Process for the Concrete Sustainability Certification scheme
IUCN is working with the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) Cement Sustainability Initiative to facilitate the consultation process for the Concrete Sustainability Council's (CSC) certification scheme. CSC is a global effort by 25 major cement producers, who believe there is a strong business case for pursuing sustainable development.
In July 2016, 10 representatives from civil society organisations (including BirdLife International, Friends of Nature Lebanon and WWF China) gathered at IUCN's headquarters in Gland, Switzerland, to provide comments on the scheme. The meeting report providing an overview of input and recommendations on the CSC certification scheme is available here. The group provided additional feedback on the final draft of the document in November.
Following the consultation process, CSC revised the scheme and published Version 1 of the CSC Technical Manual on 17 February 2017. A letter from the civil society organisations engaged in the process with feedback on Version 1 is available here.
