The GCCA gathers and publishes data recording the industry’s sustainability commitments, as well as publishing member guidelines and initiating research.
Some of this work has been supported by the transfer of the Cement Sustainability Initiative (CSI) activities to the GCCA under a strategic partnership with the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD).
The GNR database (“Getting the Numbers Right” or “GCCA in NumbeRs”) is now managed by the GCCA, having transferred from the CSI at the end of 2018. It is accessible here*.

The GNR database is open for all interested parties to view data. The years for which data is available are: 1990, 2000, and 2005 to 2016. You can contact the GNR Project Management Committee if your company or organization is interested in finding out more about participating in the GNR system or about making data queries. Individual queries about specific issues are answered within strict confidentiality guidelines.
Charges may be levied on data requests to cover operational costs, especially with regard to complex data requests. The database complies with anti-trust laws and is managed by an independent third-party service provider. Individual participants may only see reports based on their individual company data or aggregated results. Confidential information on individual companies or plants is not disclosed, nor made accessible, and is protected by contractual and data security measures.
