Concrete Sustainability Council, towards a sustainable, safe, durable and comfortable future

More about us  

What we do

The CSC Certification System for Concrete is being issued and maintained by the Concrete Sustainability Council (CSC) and applicable globally. In regions with a substantial interest in sustainable concrete certifications, the CSC is implementing and adapting the CSC system in partnership with Regional System Operators. 

The CSC system is a product certification system, which typically applies to all products manufactured and supplied by the plant. Ready-mix concrete plants and precast concrete plants can obtain a ‘CSC certificate’.

Cement and aggregate suppliers can obtain a ‘CSC supplier certificate’. The CSC supplier certificates are being recognized in the CSC concrete certification in the category ‘Chain of custody’.

No CSC certificate can be issued if the prerequisites have not been satisfied.

  • P1 Ethical and Legal Compliance
  • P2 Human Rights
  • P3 Indigenous People Rights 
  • P4 Environmental and Social Impact
  • P5 Traced Materials 

In addition to the prerequisites for certification, the four categories are subdivided into individual credits (Version 2.1).
