The Portland Cement Association (PCA) announced its first PCA Sustainable Leadership Awards—created to honor government leaders advancing sustainable developments through the use of concrete and cement-based products.

The awards' will honor public officials for three tiers of sustainability—economic, environmental, and social—and who demonstrate it in their community. In addition, the awards are meant to raise awareness of concrete green building solutions and invest in future growth by partnering with government leaders.

The four award categories include the Leadership in Sustainability Policy Award, and three project-specific areas: Homes and Residential building, Non-Residential Building, and Infrastructure. The submission deadline is Friday, May 30 and winners will be notified no later than Aug. 1.
