May 18, 2023 (press release) –

Building materials supplier Cemex, and Ecocem, both European leading-edge companies in lower carbon construction technologies, today announce a new partnership, which will see the two companies work together from June 2023 to test and implement lower carbon solutions in France.

Cemex and Ecocem have a long history of collaboration, with Ecocem supplying Cemex France with raw materials for many years. With this extension of the partnership the two companies will explore opportunities to use lower-carbon cementitious material in concrete production, in line with Cemex’s European aspiration of hitting a 55% reduction in CO2 emissions in its operations by 2030.

Initially, the partnership will trial lower carbon solutions in ten of Cemex’s French readymix production plants, with the ambition to extend in France and potentially the wider region as part of a portfolio of initiatives in the sector. Developing innovative partnerships with key industry players such as Ecocem is an important pillar of Cemex’s dedicated climate action strategy, Future in Action.

Michel Andre, Vice President Materials Western Europe at Cemex and President of Cemex Francecommented: “Cemex continues to reinforce its commitment to advancing the sustainability agenda with the announcement of this extended partnership with Ecocem. We know that if we are to achieve our global ambition of operating as a net-zero business by 2050 we must prioritise exploring innovation and new technologies with like-minded companies who share our dedication to leading the industry’s transition to a lower carbon and circular economy.

“The validation of our global goal through the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) for alignment under their 1.5ºC scenario, the most ambitious pathway defined for the industry, further underlines our commitment to more sustainable operations, products and solutions.”

Founder and Managing Director of Ecocem, Donal O’Riain said, “Cemex has been a key partner for Ecocem since the inception of our business in France. Combining our strengths has huge potential to make considerable progress in supplying lower-carbon cementitious material for use in lower-carbon concrete. We are firmly committed to this partnership starting in France. It is only through working together we will make the progress needed to achieve decarbonisation targets.”
