Sustainability is an issue of global importance in the 21st century. All industries of all nations have to take action to achieve sustainable development. The concrete industry is no exception, as it uses an enormous amount of resources and energy. However, concrete is also essential for the creation of infrastructure and buildings that form the basis of human socioeconomic activities. We need to utilize concrete in the future by promoting the development of innovative concrete technologies and systems from the perspective of sustainability. The First International Conference on Concrete Sustainability will provide a forum to encourage such developments and to discuss the future of concrete by exchanging the latest information, technologies, and ideas.

Tokyo is the capital and economic, political, and entertainment center of Japan. With a population of over 13 million in the Tokyo metropolitan area alone, development and construction in Tokyo has produced one of the most ecological and land- and energy- efficient cities in the world. Tokyo is bordered by Tokyo Bay in the southeast and by high mountains in the west, including picturesque Mt. Fuji, and the weather in May is typically mild with average temperatures around 19 degrees Celsius.
