FOR A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
Concrete has been at the heart of building our civilization since before the Romans built the Pantheon. That structure is almost 2000 years old and still standing today. Those of us in the cement and concrete industry are proud of that unique heritage.
Fast forward to the 21st century. Concrete unquestionably continues to play a critical role in building the communities in which we live and work. From our residential buildings to our public transit to our hydroelectric dams, society relies on concrete products.
We in the concrete industry also know that we are being relied upon to innovate and play a leading role in addressing sustainability challenges, including the urgent need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to climate change.
We are committed to continuous improvement, transparency and developing collaborative solutions for a low carbon future, both in terms of product-based solutions we manufacture — such as low carbon cement and concrete — and policy-based solutions — such as a price on carbon.
At the core of our approach is a holistic view of the issues that add to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and solutions to help in building climate resilient structures. We have always been involved in building what lasts, and that is no different when it comes to creating lasting solutions to our current complex challenges.
