Ceram to Present at Housing Summit 2013
Dr Andrew Smith, Head of Sustainability & Construction Materials, will present ‘Resource Efficiency Action Plans’ at the Housing Summit 2013, Arup, Solihull, 17 October 2013.
The presentation will review the work undertaken by Ceram on behalf of the Brick Development Association (BDA) and Mineral Products Association (MPA) British Precast in developing their respective Resource Efficiency Action Plans (REAPs).
The ‘Clay Bricks and Clay Blocks Resource Efficiency Action Plan’ and ‘Precast Concrete Resource Efficiency Action Plan’ are a result of several stakeholder workshops where potential resource efficiency measures and opportunities were reviewed. The REAPs encompass opportunities within the construction product supply chains, from raw materials through to demolition and recycling, and have brought together representatives from all parts of the process. The action plans will work towards reducing the overall environmental impact of construction materials.
The REAPs were launched on 08 October at the Houses of Parliament; this also included the Ready-Mixed Concrete REAP.
