Purpose & Mission

Concrete is more than a building material. It provides homes, it connects communities, it encourages trade, it provides energy, it improves health, it broadens minds.

Our Governance

The GCCA is a CEO led industry initiative. It’s members, Board of Directors, and Executive team are committed to sustainability – reducing the impacts of cement production and promoting the unique properties of concrete as a sustainable, durable and resilient building material – a material that will answer the needs of a growing and increasingly urban population that is set to exceed 9 billion people by 2050.

The not-for-profit international association has an executive team and secretariat that is directed by the Board on behalf of members to deliver a programme of activity with the support of member led working groups and task groups.  GCCA works closely with national and regional cement and concrete associations partners.
