U of T Engineer Named Chair of SERA Technical Advisory Group

Not-for-profit organization, Socially and Environmentally Responsible Aggregates (SERA), has named Professor Brenda McCabe, Chair of the Department of Civil Engineering, as its Chair of its newly formed expert technical panel.

Professor McCabe leads a group of experts – representing municipal, industry, community and environmental interests – who will produce a final voluntary standard that establishes credible, practical and measurable requirements for socially and environmentally responsible aggregate extraction in Ontario.

“I am very pleased to be chairing this important group for SERA,” said Professor McCabe, who brings a wealth of construction sector knowledge to the panel. “Voluntary certification initiatives such as SERA have proven an effective model for encouraging and rewarding the adoption of best social and environmental practices amongst other resource sectors.”
