Blog Posts Sustainability

The Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA) andWorld Economic Forum have today launched ‘Concrete Action for Climate’ (CAC)a collaborative platform that will help drive the industry’s journey to carbon neutral concrete by 2050 as part of the Mission Possible Partnership.

The concrete and cement industry, which has cut emissions proportionally by 20% since 1990, is now assembling wider support to achieve its ambitious 2050 carbon neutral target. The Concrete Action for Climate initiative, which already represents 40% of the global concrete and cement industry through the GCCA, will bring together expertise and influence from the wider built environment industry, business, civil society, governments, and investors to help deliver and co-ordinate global climate action, stimulate demand for sustainable materials and ensure appropriate financing and public policy is in place to help the sector reduce its carbon footprint.

The work of the Concrete Action for Climate forms part of the Mission Possible Partnership (MPP) and will follow a four-step approach, bringing together ambitious industry stakeholders to forge a shared vision for the future of concrete.

Alongside CAC, GCCA members are working on a comprehensive roadmap which will outline the pathway to net-zero with measurable milestones and a shared commitment to agreed actions. CAC will also be supporting implementation through the development of practical resources and toolkits for actions to share best practice with concrete and cement companies globally.
