Leading cement, concrete companies launch Global Cement & Concrete Association

Nine leading companies in the cement and concrete sector have launched the Global Cement & Concrete Association (GCCA), a progressive new association, dedicated to develop and strengthen the sector’s contribution to construction.

The association 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 this end, GCCA 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.

In addition, GCCA aims to foster innovation throughout the construction value chain, in collaboration with both industry associations and inspiring architects, engineers and innovators.
