In 2021, the GCCA launched its 2050 Cement and Concrete Industry Roadmap for Net Zero Concrete, setting out the positive vision for how the cement and concrete industry will play a major role in building the sustainable world of tomorrow.
The 2050 roadmap represented the collective commitment of the world’s leading cement and concrete companies – representing 80% of global cement industry volume outside of China and some key Chinese companies – to decarbonise. We were the first global industry to set out such a detailed pathway.
Our roadmap outlines the levers, pathways and milestones in an achievable net zero pathway to help limit global warming to 1.5oC. Forty of the world’s leading cement and concrete manufacturers joined forces to accelerate the shift to greener concrete by pledging to cut CO2 emissions by a further 25% by 2030, marking a decisive step in the race to ‘Net Zero’ concrete by 2050.
Building on the decarbonisation progress our industry has made over the past three decades, we are confident of achieving our goal, and our industry is demonstrating meaningful climate action today.
Our member’s actions are driving decisive progress on our industry mission to fully decarbonise. In the last year alone a myriad of actions, projects, investments are underway.
