PCI, CPCI, NPCA release first Sustainable Precast Concrete Plant Program report

Backed by the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute, Canadian Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute and National Precast Concrete Association, the North American Precast Concrete Sustainable Plant Program (NAPCSPP) has yielded its first full-year energy, materials and transportation data benchmarks. PCI’s inaugural Sustainable Plant Program Performance Report presents results in carbon dioxide equivalent (global warming potential), total primary energy and water consumption categories.

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 plants that are currently enrolled in the program (through the first quarter of 2016) as well as the PCI Sustainable Plant Performance Report can be found on the institute’s website, www.pci.org.

“PCI producer members that participate in the NAPCSPP are showing leadership by actively monitoring and reporting environmental footprint indicators. These producers recognize that to make improvements, they must first benchmark and track performance,” states Emily Lorenz, sustainability manager, PCI.
