Cement association launched

The Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA), launched in late January by nine leading companies in the cement and concrete sector, aims to develop and strengthen the sector’s contribution to sustainable construction.

GCCA’s founding members are CEMEX – majority shareholder in TCL – CNBM, CRH, Dangote, Eurocement, HeidelbergCement, LafargeHolcim, Taiheiyo and Votorantim.

GCCA will “focus on driving advancements in sustainable construction, working to enhance the cement and concrete industry’s contribution to a variety of global social and developmental challenges.” To do so, the association said it will promote the development of durable, resilient and environmentally sensitive buildings and infrastructure at global level.

“With concrete now representing the world’s second most consumed product after water, issues at the forefront of the organisation’s agenda include sustainable development and urbanisation, as well as climate change mitigation and adaptation.”
