UK: Nine cement and concrete companies have launched the Global Cement & Concrete Association (GCCA), a new association that intends to develop the sector’s role in sustainable construction. The association also wants to build innovation throughout the construction value chain, in collaboration with both industry associations and architects and engineers.
The GCCA will be led by international cement companies and headquartered in London, complementing and supporting the work done by existing associations at national and regional level. Membership of the GCCA is available for cement manufacturers from all over the world that share the organisation’s values, and partnerships will be developed with organisations that share its vision. GCCA’s founding members are Cemex, CNBM, CRH, Dangote, Eurocement, HeidelbergCement, LafargeHolcim, Taiheiyo and Votorantim. They represent 1046Mt of cement production capacity, according to the Global Cement Top 100 Report.
