CEN publishes CWA Indicators for the sustainability assessment of roads
In November, CEN, the European Committee for Standardisation, published 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.)
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. BSI.
