CRH Americas Materials joined The Road Forward, a National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) initiative designed to achieve net-zero carbon emission asphalt pavements.

According to NAPA, the move is one of several steps CRH has taken to address climate change challenges and opportunities. Additionally, the association says CRH is dedicated to product innovation in warm-mix asphalt and recycled asphalt pavements – both of which are critical to achieve the goals established in The Road Forward.

Separately, CRH’s Innovation Centre for Sustainable Construction partners with industry and academia to develop new and innovative technologies to advance environmental goals and solutions, with more than 60 research projects underway.

“CRH’s leadership in the areas of sustainability and environmental responsibility, both at the company level and at the association level, have been tremendous,” says Audrey Copeland, NAPA president and CEO. “Through innovation, leadership and profound commitment, CRH sets an example for asphalt mix producers and pavers throughout our industry.”

Ron Sines, CRH’s vice president of sustainability and decarbonization, says the company’s decarbonization efforts often have the added benefit of reducing the cost of asphalt pavement materials, improving their performance, or both.

“By formally joining The Road Forward initiative, CRH will help further advance emissions-reduction technologies and practices, generating value for pavement owners, industry and other stakeholders,” Sines says.
