We’re on a mission to decarbonise cement 50% by 2030

Cement has a problem

Concrete is one of the most important substances on earth. After water, it is the most consumed product on earth. Yet it’s key ingredient – cement – is extremely polluting. It is responsible for over 90 per cent of the carbon footprint of concrete. Overall, every tonne of cement manufactured emits almost one tonne of CO2.


By reducing the need to burn limestone to produce clinker, the key ingredient in cement, and using alternative cementitious materials.

We have to find a solution

Ecocem is a pioneer of high-performance cement technology for the deep and rapid decarbonisation of the cement and concrete industries. This technology has the potential to reduce the carbon footprint of the cement industry by as much as 70%

This is an incredible time to be part of the cement industry.

The world needs cement. From housing, sanitation, and places of education and health to roads, flood defences and sustainable energy sources, cement is the glue that holds it all together.
