CLIMATE CHANGE.

OUR COMMITMENT AND ACTION

For more than 10 years, we have been working to reduce our footprint and have reduced our CO2 emissions by 14% from the baseline. In 2020, we updated our Climate Change Strategy and made progress in achieving the goals focused on mitigation and adaptation through innovation and risk and opportunity management.

OUR GOALS:

  • By 2030, we will reduce net specific CO2 emissions by 29% compared to the 2006 baseline (735 kg CO2/ton of cementitious material); this is equivalent to emitting a maximum of 523 kg CO2/ton of cementitious material.
  • We will achieve a 33% substitution of caloric consumption from the use of alternative fuels.
  • We will offer carbon-neutral concrete by 2050, within the framework of the Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA) initiative.

The Future of Concrete initiative of the Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA) sets out the positive vision of how the cement and concrete industry will play an important role in building the sustainable world of the future. In the last 100 years, concrete has revolutionized the global construction environment.

 

The sector has committed to producing carbon-neutral concrete by 2050. The industry has already made progress with proportional reductions in CO2 emissions in cement production of 20% in the last three decades.

 

The collective actions of the companies adhering to 2030 will prevent almost five billion tons of CO2 emissions from reaching the atmosphere. This is a watershed moment for our industry and the world, as it shows it’s possible, and sets an achievable path to zero emissions for one of man’s most widely used materials.
