August 6, 2012 – Two are sometimes better as one. The Aggregate Forum of Ontario and Socially and Environmentally Responsible Aggregate Canada (SERA-Canada) will merge their non-profit organizations to better focus on developing voluntary social- and environmental-certification systems for the aggregateindustry in Ontario. Bill Galloway, senior vice-president at Holcim Canada Inc. and a SERA-Canada Board Member called the move “the right thing to do at the right time.” The two organizations will merge their boards to establish a "single world-class environmental and social certification system" for responsible aggregate extraction, permitting and operations.
