Cement and concrete companies release 2050 Climate Ambition


The 2050 Climate Ambition initiative was released on 31 August 2020. Its purpose is to demonstrate the commitment of the cement and concrete industry to reducing the amount of CO2 created by these materials while working towards the production of carbon neutral concrete by 2050. The Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA) released the statement on behalf of 40 cement and concrete companies from around the world.

The statement represents actions required by the industry to achieve carbon neutral concrete, including:

GCCA members are developing a 2050 concrete roadmap that will set out the detailed actions and milestones that the industry will enact in order to achieve its targets. This will include working across the built environment value chain to deliver the vision of carbon neutral concrete in a circular economy, whole life context. The 2050 concrete roadmap is due to be published in the second half of 2021.
