Six new CSC certificates in Germany

Holcim Deutschland has been awarded CSC certificates for ready-mix concrete and aggregate in Germany, increasing the number of CSC certificates in the country to 47.

Germany welcomes the next company achieving CSC certificates. After having certified three cement operations in 2018, Holcim Deutschland now obtained four CSC Gold for ready-mix concrete plants and two CSC Silver for aggregate operations, with further certifications in the pipeline.

With this Holcim Deutschland is the first company globally holding certificates over the entire concrete supply chain, including cement and aggregate. The CSC Gold for the concrete plants in Düsseldorf and Langenfeld and the CSC Silver for the aggregate operations in Malsch and Kaarst are the best scores ever awarded by the CSC.

The six new certificates have been handed over in an official ceremony at the Ulmer Betontage by Olaf Aßbrock, Managing Director of the Bundesverband Transportbeton (BTB), which is the German System Operator for the Concrete Sustainability Council. The certificates have been issued by Kiwa Germany.

Dr. Olaf Aßbrock said: 'We are very warmly welcoming Holcim Deutschland in the growing family of CSC certified concrete plants, especially with such excellent results showing our sector's commitment to responsible  sourcing practices along the entire supply chain.'

Thorsten Hahn, CEO Holcim Deutschland reacted: 'We are very honored having been awarded with CSC certificates on all three levels: concrete, cement and aggregate. More than this, we are super proud having achieved all-time record scores for concrete and aggregate. this is a reward for our company's continuous effort in providing sustainable construction solutions to our customers.'
