Ceram Presents at the 57th Clemson Brick Forum
Dr Andrew Smith, Principal Consultant at Ceram presented ‘Leaving Your Mark: Footprinting as a Business Tool' at the 57th Clemson Brick Forum, The National Brick Research Centre, South Carolina, USA, 4th October 2011.
The forum is the largest conference in the brick manufacturing industry and was attended by 400 delegates from around the world, including the USA, UK, Canada, Columbia and Germany.
The presentation reviewed the recently completed UK Brick Industry Carbon and Water Footprinting projects. The Carbon Footprinting project was undertaken with the Brick Development Agency and the Water Footprints were carried out at 12 of the UK brickworks, including all four of the main manufacturers. The Carbon Footprint generated has been adopted as an industry "norm", with many of the manufacturers benchmarking their own operations and carbon reduction targets against this Footprint.
