The National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) will offer its 2015 Asphalt Sustainability Conference West! from October 13–14 at the Marriott Portland Downtown Waterfront in Portland, OR.
From alternative energy to water conservation to livable communities, the western states have led the way in developing frameworks and means for realizing our sustainable future. When it comes to the surfaces we drive, bike, and walk on, asphalt pavements provide the greatest potential for ensuring sustainability from construction through use and beyond.
The NAPA 2015 Asphalt Sustainability Conference highlights new thinking, technologies, and practices that ensure the sustainability of asphalt pavements. Embracing sustainable asphalt pavements provides pavement owners, the travelling public, and communities with economic, environmental, and social rewards, and it can create a competitive edge for asphalt mix producers.
A sustainability program for your organization will help:
- Improve your environmental profile and products
- Save costs
- Gain competitive advantage
- Earn trust with neighbors and community members
By attending the NAPA 2015 Asphalt Sustainability Conference, you will learn:
- What sustainability really means
- Why it is increasingly important to the future of your company and community
- How sustainability is measured
- Asphalt’s advantages for achieving sustainability, drivability, and performance goals
The conference will provide invaluable learning and networking opportunities for contractors, DOT personnel, construction managers, environmental managers, engineers, designers, specifiers and decision-makers in the road construction industry as they explore sustainability’s new frontier.
