Our Approach

With a focus on cross-industry and multistakeholder collaboration, we are working to:

  • Ensure the supply and manufacturing of cement and concrete are in line with global climate goals
  • Increase demand for low-carbon cement and concrete by helping design and advocate for appropriate policy levers
  • Use a circular approach of land stewardship, effective design, material efficiency, reuse, and recycling to maximise the potential benefits of cement and concrete while minimising climate impacts

Our Goals

  • Double down on coalition-building efforts across the built environment value chain
  • Launch a sector transition strategy for net-zero cement and concrete, with a clear set of policy asks
  • Facilitate increased use of wastes and by-products as alternative fuels and raw materials, as well as increased reuse of concrete and use of demolished concrete
  • Drive private- and public-sector demand for sustainable cement and concrete
  • Establish metrics for resilience of buildings and infrastructure
Concrete and Cement Sector Transition Strategy
Making Net Zero Concrete and Cement Possible is a strategy created with industry input that sets out milestones and commitments needed by government, industry and investors over the next 25 years to make net-zero emissions concrete and cement a reality.
The first roadmap to be developed with the concrete & cement industry, it is anchored in granular economic modelling with two different pathways to net-zero emissions by 2050.
