The Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA) was established in London in May 2018 by Taiheiyo Cement Corporation and the nine leading companies in the cement and concrete industries covering the entire continents. Since January 2019, the GCCA has succeed the works of Cement Sustainability Initiative, a sector project initiated under the auspices of the WBCSD (World Business Council for Sustainable Development). GCCA facilitates sustainable development under the strategic partnership with WBCSD.
Cement and concrete are indispensable in the construction environment around the world. GCCA collaborates to demonstrate how we can contribute to the environment surrounding construction through the creation of innovative and sustainable solutions, and to anticipate global construction challenges and future social development needs, taking responsible industrial leadership in the manufacture and use of these materials.
As a member of GCCA, Taiheiyo Cement works toward sustainable development.
