Sarah Petrevan, CAC’s Vice President of Industrial Decarbonization and Sustainability, has been awarded the Canada Green Building Council’s (CAGBC) Green Building Champion Award, awarded for exceptional achievement in initiatives that advocate for CAGBC’s core interests, programs, and priorities.

Sarah played a key role in the development of Concrete Zero: Canada’s Cement and Concrete Industry Action Plant to Net-Zero, a transparent, accountable plan that outlines the industry’s path to achieve net-zero concrete by 2050.

Sarah participates in numerous advisory panels, including the CAGBC’s Advisory Panel on Carbon Capture and Utilization in Cementitious Building Materials, and the upcoming Product Category Rules (PCR) for Portland, Blended, Masonry, Mortar and Plastic (Stucco) Cements.

As a leader in the embodied carbon conversation, Sarah founded the Buy Clean Industry Alliance prior to joining the CAC. Now at the CAC, Sarah is an active member of the Alliance and works with them to advance the policy landscape to enable low carbon concrete.

Adam Auer, President and CEO of the CAC said: “This is an incredibly well-deserved recognition for Sarah, her commitment and passion for sustainability is undeniable. She is a true asset to our organization, and we are excited for her continued leadership as we continue to innovate and collaborate on the path to net-zero by 2050.”
