EUPAVE: CEN publishes CWA “Indicators for the Sustainability Assessment of Roads”
In November, the European Committee for Standardization (CEN) published the CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA) 17089:2016 “Indicators for the sustainability assessment of roads”. (A CWA is CEN Workshop Agreement, which is a document agreed by a CEN workshop, but that does not have the status of a European Standard).
The European Concrete Paving Association (EUPAVE) was actively involved in the development of this voluntary document, which offers a set of indicators for the sustainability assessment of roads. The indicators cover the three pillars of sustainability, and while the document does not provide a full life-cycle assessment methodology, it offers indicators that may be used in Green Public Procurement, for example. The document aims to be consistent with CEN/TC 350 “Sustainability of construction works” standards.
CWA 17089:2016 is available to buy from CEN national members e.g. To purchase CWA 17089:2016 “Indicators for the sustainability assessment of roads”, please go to: http://shop.bsigroup.com/ProductDetail/?pid=000000000030352879.
