The cement and concrete industry has a long-held commitment to improving its environmental footprint. The GCCA provides a platform for accelerating alignment and action for the industry to meet the opportunity of achieving net zero concrete. Our critical task ahead is to address the challenges that stand in
Because of concrete’s fundamental importance to the world we live in today, and the critical role it will play in building the sustainable world of tomorrow, GCCA and its member companies are aware of the responsibility to further enhance and accelerate the progress we have made.
However, while we have a vision and an aspiration to deliver net zero concrete to society by 2050, we recognise that we do not have all the answers, nor can we achieve our goal on our own. It is a significant undertaking. The policy settings and levers need to be correct. Significant work and investment are required across the construction value chain to promote innovation in new products, processes and technologies.
To deliver our ambition, we must partner with stakeholders to support our thinking, challenge us and set an ambitious but achievable roadmap for the industry that meets global expectations and drives the appropriate response in taking climate action.
We call on policymakers, governments, investors, researchers, innovators, customers, end-users and ﬁnancial institutions to join with us on this critical journey and help to ensure the right resources, tools and policies are in place to deliver net zero concrete for the world.
