Dufferin Aggregates’ Acton Quarry certified by the Cornerstone Standards Council

DFA Acton CSC Certification

Dufferin Aggregates’ Acton Quarry Certified as World’s First Socially and Environmentally Responsible Quarry

Aggregates are the building blocks of our roads and buildings. But, there is a tension between our need for these products and the need to protect the environment and the communities where aggregate sites operate. For the first time, a pathway exists to ensure these conflicting needs are balanced. Cornerstone Standards Council (CSC) certification can improve industry practices, reduce conflict and generate a market for sustainable products. CRH Canada is proud to forge the path for the industry by being the first producer in the world to certify an aggregate site.

In a landmark announcement, the Cornerstone Standard’s Council (CSC) officially recognized CRH Canada’s Dufferin Aggregates Acton Quarry as the first quarry in the world to receive certification as a supplier of responsibly sourced stone, sand and gravel. In January 2015, CSC released its Responsible Aggregates Standard, providing the parameters by which an aggregate quarry could achieve certification in Ontario.

CRH Canada and Dufferin Aggregates have a long-standing and well established commitment to the communities in which they operate and to being stewards of the natural environment. To be officially certified and recognized for these efforts and to have product labeled as CSC certified is an important opportunity for the company. “This certificate speaks to the relationship between CRH Canada and the Town of Halton Hills,” said Rick Bonnette, Mayor of Halton Hills. “By following CSC’s Standards and working proactively to address environmental and social impacts the Acton Quarry has been able to incorporate sustainability principles into its ongoing operations and after use.”
