GCCA and our Members at COP26

The GCCA is proud to be an official observer at COP26, following the launch of our Roadmap to Net Zero Concrete and our status as the first industrial Race to Zero accelerator.

COP26 is expected to be the most significant UN Climate Change Conference since Paris. Building on its recently launched net zero roadmap, GCCA will be actively engaging with all stakeholders, aiming to work with the wider business community to help advance the negotiations on international carbon markets.  

The launch of our roadmap was a significant milestone for our industry, marking the first time the global industry has come together to set out the actions, milestones and levers required to achieve net zero concrete. It also sets out the policy asks for governments around the world to set the conditions for us to achieve this crucial goal.

COP26 will provide a springboard for us to accelerate our discussions with policymakers and government leaders from around the world.

As well as our own event – From Global Commitment to Local Action – Implementing the Cement and Concrete Net Zero Roadmap – (taking place in the Buildings Pavilion) on the 4th November, we and our members will be participating in several other events over the course of COP26.
