Implementing the Cement and Concrete Net Zero Roadmap(COP26)-Nov 2021
Recorded Sessions available online (cement/concrete and others).
With 189 members, including 33 countries, the Global Alliance for Buildings and Construction is the leading global platform for governments, the private sector, civil society and intergovernmental and international organisations to increase action towards a zero-emission, efficient and resilient buildings and construction sector.
Last week the GCCA hosted a session at the Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26). Its “From Global Commitment to Local Action – Implementing the Cement and Concrete Net Zero Roadmap” event on 4 November 2021 at COP26, built on the launch of the Concrete Future 2050 Roadmap to Net Zero Concrete, which outlines the levers and pathways required to achieve their ambitious goal.
The launch of our roadmap saw forty of the world’s leading cement and concrete manufacturers joined forces to accelerate the shift to greener concrete by pledging to cut CO2 emissions by 25% by 2030, as part of a wider commitment to achieve net zero by 2050.
The move by the members of the GCCA marks the biggest global commitment by an industry to net zero so far. It follows the September announcement during New York Climate Week that the GCCA has become the first global ‘heavy’ industry accelerator for the UN’s global Race to Zero.
The recorded GCCA session can be viewed online.
Many of the other events at the conference were recorded and can be accessed from the GlobalABC website.
