Concrete is an indispensable part of our built environment. Our industry’s push to achieve net-zero moves us in an ever-greener direction that will help ensure thriving, sustainable and resilient communities.
Our roadmap to net-zero
For decades now, the Canadian cement and concrete industry has been engaged in reducing its carbon footprint and creating more sustainable and lower-carbon solutions for Canada’s building industry. Today, we’re accelerating our actions towards net-zero concrete.
Sustainable construction for a circular economy
Concrete is ever-present in our daily lives and it has been integral to the development of modern society. It is used to build homes, skyscrapers, bridges, schools, hospitals, highways and dams and it has unlimited design possibilities. Some of the world’s most iconic structures—old and new alike—were formed with concrete.
The resilience of our built environment—the ability of our homes, buildings and infrastructure to withstand extreme events like fire, earthquakes and violent weather, and our own ability to function in the face of these events—is central to thriving, sustainable communities.
