Discover our work – Spotlight on cement & concrete

Concrete is, after water, the material we consume the most. It is made of a mixture of gravel, sand, water and the key ingredient, cement, acting as the glue holding it all together. The main ingredient for common cement is the so-called “Portland clinker”. Its 3.2 billion tonnes produced each year contribute to the 8% of global CO2 emissions for which the sector is responsible. But clinker is far from irreplaceable. Read our one-pager and learn how cement impacts the environment and what we can do about that.
