Plotting a Route to Net Zero: Global and Country Roadmaps for the Cement and Concrete Sector

The Global Concrete Future Roadmap to Net Zero concrete was published in 2021 by GCCA.  Since 2022, this global commitment and pathway is being used as a catalyst to develop country specific roadmaps for net zero concrete. These country roadmaps take into account the particular opportunities and challenges that each country face.  Our first speaker, Maria Garcia, brings expertise from across Central and South America where FICEM have a deep knowledge of the status of the cement sector and are developing country specific roadmaps to net zero.  Sanjay Seth and Paulo Camillo, from India and Brazil respectively, will present on the soon to be published roadmaps for two of the most important growing economies.
