“Any meaningful attempt to tackle climate change and achieve sustainable development will require not only that all corners of the Canadian economy contribute, but that governments, industry, environmental groups and broader civil society rise above the rhetoric and strategic positioning of our respective sectors and work together,” Cement Association of Canada (CAC) President Michael McSweeney told 2012 Pollution Probe Gala guests. “The cement industry, along with our allies in concrete, are ready to be proactive partners. Concrete is literally the foundation upon which modern societies and economies are built and we believe it will be the foundation of the sustainable societies and economies of the future.”
