Sustainable concrete

Concrete is one of the most sustainable construction materials, as the concrete structure of a building will as a rule last a lot longer than its intended service life. Concrete mixtures can be optimised in a sustainable manner using secondary raw auxiliary materials, concrete is 100% recyclable, concrete is thermally active, concrete requires little maintenance, concrete makes flexible construction possible.

Concrete is one of the most sustainable construction materials, because:

  • the concrete structure of a building will as a rule last a lot longer than its intended service life.
  • concrete mixtures can be optimised in a sustainable manner using secondary auxiliary materials such as concrete granulate, blast furnace slag, and fly ashes.
  • concrete is 100% recyclable.
  • concrete is thermally active. Energy can be saved by making the best possible use of the thermal possibilities of concrete.
  • concrete requires little maintenance.
  • concrete makes flexible construction possible.

CSC label

All Cementbouw concrete plants have the golden CSC label. The CSC label represents sustainable extraction of raw materials, responsible production of concrete, and responsible purchase of concrete. Concrete and raw material suppliers are audited by an independent certifying body. The label gives concrete purchasers certainty. The sustainable production of concrete is guaranteed and is the standard for cooperation. Concrete purchasers are also guaranteed that the certified party provides ideas, advice, and a high-quality contribution to the sustainability of the projects that must be created.
