With the close of its first public consultation, the Cornerstone Standards Council (CSC) is entering into the final stretch of developing and launching its voluntary standard for responsible aggregate extraction, a global first.

After two years of multi-stakeholder negotiations, CSC released its draft standard for public consultation in January. (www.dcnonl.com/article/id58593) More than 150 individuals participated in 27 meetings and workshops, and CSC received over 100 submissions with more than 2,000 comments.

Over the coming months, CSC’s Standard Development Panel will review and consider the comments received, and prepare a second draft of the standard for public consultation in late summer.

The CSC called the work ahead demand and said it “will require collaboration and innovation to find real solutions that integrate environmental, social and economic values.”
