Our COP26 event examined how action in individual countries and regions can be taken/is already underway on the path to Net Zero, based on the recommendations in the GCCA Global Cement and Concrete Industry 2050 Roadmap to Net Zero Concrete, published in October 2021


In October, 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, as part of a wider commitment to achieve net zero by 2050. The move by the members of the Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA) marks the biggest global commitment by an industry to net zero so far – bringing together companies from the Americas, Africa, Asia, including India and China, and Europe. It follows the September announcement during New York Climate Week that the GCCA has become the first global ‘heavy’ industry accelerator for the UN’s global Race to Zero. GCCA members account for 80% of the global cement industry volume outside of China, and also include several large Chinese manufacturers.
