PCI releases First Annual North American Precast Concrete Sustainable Plant Program report

The precast concrete industry is striving to reduce its environmental impact at the manufacturing level through the North American Precast Concrete Sustainable Plant Program (NAPCSPP). The NAPCSPP is designed to encourage continuous improvement in the plants and allow individual plants to benchmark against their industry peers. Energy, materials and transportation data are tracked and results are reported in the following categories: carbon dioxide equivalent (global warming potential), total primary energy and water consumption.

PCI members have been reporting environmental impacts for 18 months, beginning the first quarter of 2015. This first annual report includes moving averages for PCI members during 2015. A list of participating PCI plants and the PCI Sustainable Plant Performance Report can be found on the PCI website.

The NAPCSPP is a joint initiative for the members of the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI), the Canadian Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (CPCI) and the National Precast Concrete Association (NPCA).
