As the second most used commodity in the world (second only to water) concrete is vital to our daily lives and our communities. It’s an indispensable part of our built environment, from our homes, schools, and hospitals to our rapid-transit systems, bridges, renewable energy, wastewater treatment plants and other vital infrastructure. Our industry’s push to achieve net-zero concrete moves us in an ever-greener direction that will ultimately help ensure thriving, sustainable and resilient communities for generations to come.
