Concrete Joint Sustainability Initiative

About

 The Concrete Joint Sustainability Initiative is a coalition of industry associations representing companies who make or maintain concrete structures.  We share a goal of educating ourselves, our members, and our customers about the role and responsibilities of concrete in sustainable development.

We invite you to explore with us, share with us, and learn with us.

Formed in the spring of 2009, the Concrete Joint Sustainability Initiative represents over 20 associations that, as a group, will concentrate on the sustainable development applications of all concrete structures. It aims to project a unified industry front and present a common message. The Initiative is not an organization; it has no staff. Officers and staff members of its partner associations attend meetings. These staff representatives are relied on to carry out its activities. Member task groups have been created to develop and implement current program objectives. The three charter organizations— American Concrete Institute (ACI), Portland Cement Association (PCA), and National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA)— function as its steering committee, with PCA’s Vice Chair and ACI’s President serving as meeting Chair and Vice Chair, respectively.
