Cement and Concrete Net Zero Progress – Event and Reception

We cordially invite you as an important stakeholder to the launch of the "Cement Industry Progress Report 2023" and the formal unveiling of our ‘Concrete Future’ Pavilion. 2 Dec 2023, 16.30-18.00 – at the ‘Concrete Future Pavilion’, TA3-245, Thematic Arena, Blue Zone.


This report is an opportunity to highlight the efforts undertaken by private and public players towards the decarbonisation of the cement and concrete sector – which produces the most used materials on earth after water. Our member companies are fully committed and working towards building a net zero future. The report contains contributions by GCCA member companies who are driving the daily decarbonisation agenda, as well as important contributions from key stakeholders such as the High Level Champions, Government of Canada on the Cement Breakthrough, UNIDO, Mission Innovation and LeadIT.

Our goal is to both highlight the progress so far, and identify the existing challenges to overcome that can expedite the transition. We can only achieve this by working with our members and with all relevant stakeholders who are making important contributions.

This COP will also see the launch of important initiatives on the international stage and we look forward to working with the “Cement Breakthrough" and the “Industrial Transition Accelerator” – both of which will help to galvanise more global action on decarbonisation of the industry,

Our event will include short presentations from governments, international stakeholders and GCCA's industry members:

  • High Level Climate Action Champion, HE Razan (tbd)
  • Government of Canada
  • Mission Innovation
  • CEO Cemex and President of GCCA and, Fernando Gonzalez
  • CEO GCCA, Thomas Guillot

The presentations will be followed by an informal reception to launch our Pavilion.
