The Cement Association of Canada, alongside the Canadian Ready-Mixed Concrete Association and our provincial partners have worked together to develop Concrete Carbon: A Guideline for Specifying Low Carbon Ready Mixed Concrete in Canada.

Canada’s cement and concrete industry is a committed partner in building a low carbon world. This document provides guidance on how to specify low carbon concrete using a project concrete carbon budget approach that also supports achieving performance and constructability needs.

This guide includes information on essential areas of knowledge for sustainable concrete specifying, including:

  • Environmental Product Declarations.
  • Industry average self declarations.
  • Performance-based specifications
  • Concrete Carbon Project Budgets

The guide also features real world case studies from Ontario, Alberta and Quebec.
