Strategic Development Council to Host Sustainability Events

Strategic Development Council LogoThe concrete industry’s Strategic Development Council announced two upcoming events concerning its ongoing concrete sustainability initiative.

In conjunction with the American Concrete Institute’s Spring 2008 convention in Los Angeles, the SDC will host a concrete sustainability workshop on Saturday, March 29, 2008 in the Olympic 1 room of the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza. The full-day workshop will provide all interested persons, whether involved in SDC or not, an opportunity to review and debate the proposed sustainability strategy from the Concrete Sustainability Vision Document. This involves industry sustainability targets, key initiatives, and work plans proposed for coming decades. There is no charge to attend the March 29 sustainability workshop, but please RSVP.

SDC will also hold its regularly scheduled Session No. 23 at the Omni Mandalay Hotel at Las Colinas in Irving, Texas, April 22-23. This session for SDC member organizations will feature presentations and breakouts on several current SDC initiatives. This will include the Concrete Sustainability Project, the Vision 2020 Repair/Protection Council. It will also include consideration of Building Information Modeling and its potential impact on the concrete industry.
