Why our Roadmap is important

We believe the publication of the GCCA 2050 Roadmap to net zero concrete is a pivotal moment for our industry, the built environment and the world. It sets out a net zero pathway to help limit global warming to 1.5°C.

Through the roadmap, concrete and our industry, has a global pathway demonstrating how it can be wholly decarbonised and fully contribute to a net zero world. 

This journey is complex and will be challenging but we are fully committed. We will work together within our sector, and with others, to realise this goal and to unleash the amazing potential of net zero concrete for our world.

Concrete is the essential building material that has shaped our modern world and it is critical to building the sustainable world of tomorrow. It will play an integral role in addressing the need for sustainable and prosperous communities through the delivery of key infrastructure, homes, clean water, clean and renewable energy and by providing a more resilient built environment as our climate changes.
