“With respect to sustainability, we must analyze our value chain and maximize the results of our actions on the strength of our synergies with EFCA, the European Federation of Concrete Admixtures, Cembureau, the European Cement Association which, like us, is a member of the ECP, the European Concrete Platform, and with GCCA, the Global Cement and Concrete Association. To strengthen the digital aspect, a key role will be played by the DigiPLACE framework, a large EU-funded program for the digitization of the construction sector, and we will continue our activities with the BIM working group."
"Our goal is to ensure that concrete is established as the preferred building material in the construction industry."
