BETHESDA, MD – The Adhesive and Sealant Council (ASC) is partnering with ASTM to begin defining sustainability via a consensus-driven industry dialogue beginning in the fall of 2011. This effort is a direct outcome of the council’s first-ever Sustainability Summit, held July 26-27 in Rosemont, IL.

The primary outcome of the Sustainability Summit was a desire on the part of attendees to focus time and effort on industry definitions for sustainability. ASC will partner with ASTM to determine a calendar of events, focusing on terminology development and webinars that will support this effort. Interested industry partners should contact Steve Duren at steve.duren@ascouncil.org.
