Central Concrete Joins The Building Health Initiative By The Northern California Chapter Of The USGBC As A Founding Partner

EULESS, Texas, Oct. 31, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Central Concrete Supply Co., Inc., a business unit of U.S. Concrete, Inc. (Nasdaq:USCR), and the leader in delivering low-CO 2 concrete to the San Francisco Bay Area, announced yesterday that it has joined, as a founding member, a unique coalition of commercial building owners and tenants; architects, engineers and builders; building product manufacturers; legal professionals; labor and healthcare professionals and institutions to promote human health through green building.

The U.S. Green Building Council-Northern California Chapter (USGBC-NCC) officially launched the Building Health Initiative at its annual Super Heroes Awards Gala on Tuesday, October 29 th. Featuring a diverse array of actions, the initiative will facilitate sharing of best practices and collaboration among its members.

As a founding member of the Carbon Leadership Forum, and now the Building Health Initiative, Central Concrete continues to drive standards, transparency, and actions that promote a more sustainable and healthy built environment. Central Concrete was the first ready-mix concrete supplier in the United States to offer Concrete EPDs (Environmental Product Declarations) and the first to receive external verification of the EPDs in accordance with the International Organization for Standardization's ISO 14025 and ISO 21930.

In addition to Central Concrete, founding members include Adobe, CalPERS, Genentech, Google, Kaiser Permanente, salesforce.com, University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) and 20 other corporations and institutions, committed to elevate green building as a public health benefit and accelerate the development of transparency standards in building materials.

"This is the first time major corporations and institutions from multiple sectors have come together to publicly commit to improving human health through green building," said Dan Geiger, executive director of USGBC-NCC. "Each partner has pledged to implement new organizational actions that have direct effects and generate awareness of how the built environment affects our well-being. This is a tremendous stimulus for the movement for healthy communities for all."
