Towards Nature Positive: Protecting and Enhancing the Natural World – Positive Role of the Cement and Concrete Industry

Our industry’s impact on nature is a key focus for us, and efforts to conserve and reduce our impact have increased in recent years, particularly in light of COP15 and the adoption of the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF), which set out an ambitious pathway to reach the global vision of a world living in harmony with nature by 2050. 

GCCA members are committed towards the achievement of Net Positive Impact in their cement, concrete and aggregates operations. 

Good practices on land stewardship and biodiversity are embedded into the GCCA Sustainability Charter and the principles of the Sustainable Development Goals into our actions. 

The event will discuss further actions for the sector in the light of the recently released WEF Nature Positive Role of Cement and Concrete report as well as the launch by the GCCA of its water positivity index tool.
