Bayou Concrete supports and participates in industry efforts to achieve sustainability. Sustainability is smart use of present resources that protect and preserve those resources for future use. Concrete is a major component to achieving sustainability designs and construction. Concrete materials and efficient, sustainable focused production methods allow the project to achieve many LEED credits not available with competing materials.
Bayou Concrete is an active member of the National Ready Mix Association (NRMCA). NRMCA has produced several programs and initiatives that help member producers set goals, while identifying specific methods producers can use to sustainable targets. The attached NRMCA Sustainable Initiatives document outlines specific goals the industry has establish to support Sustainability.
There are also two industry presentations, developed by NRMCA staff, that give both general and specific information regarding Sustainability and LEED Design. These are The Environmental Attributes of Concrete
