The Cement and Concrete Association of New Zealand’s (CCANZ) 2012 Concrete3Sustainability Awards are now open for entry, until August 31st offering those in the construction industry the chance to be recognised for their sustainable achievements.
CCANZ Chief executive Rob Gaimster said it is vital to support the industry’s successes in the field of sustainability.
“The Concrete3 Sustainability Awards recognise those within the construction industry who are embracing sustainable practices as a genuine business concern.”
“By assisting practitioners to share their knowledge and experience, as well as acknowledging success, the Awards are key to raising the bar in terms of responsible design, build and operating practices across environmental, economic and social areas of endeavour.”
Strategies that encompass economic, social and environmental solutions within an overarching holistic approach are required to ensure that future generations are not disadvantaged by current consumption patterns.
Recognising the importance of immediate action, the cement and concrete industry of New Zealand has fully committed to the quest for sustainable development.
Efficiencies and innovations during concrete’s manufacture, along with its inherent properties in a range of applications, ensure that concrete provides solutions to the built environment that help New Zealand achieve sustainable development.
