Event description

Description

For the first time ever, Cornerstone Standards Council (CSC) certified aggregates are available to developers, municipalities, and construction companies for the same price as non-CSC aggregates.

Join Environmental Defence, Cornerstone Standards Council, CRH Canada and Lafarge to learn how socially and environmentally responsible aggregates can improve community relations and reduce negative environmental impacts in Ontario. By choosing to buy certified responsible aggregates your organization can be part of this change!

Hear from municipal leaders, cutting-edge green builders, progressive aggregate operators, ENGOs, and community members. We’ll share how aggregate companies and environmental leaders came together to develop CSC’s Responsible Aggregates Standard, and explore how this initiative can lead to a less contentious, more prosperous aggregate sector.

Lisa Moore, TRCA: How and why TRCA passed Ontario’s first procurement policy preferring CSC aggregates


Mark L. Dorfman, F.C.I.P., R.P.P.: Changes to the Aggregates Resources Act and implications for the sector
