We are committed to ensure a sustainable development of the construction industry, meeting today’s needs without compromising the needs of future generations.

As part of Cementir Holding Group, we have defined a sustainability strategy aimed at reducing CO2 emissions with a 10-year Roadmap and committing 100 million euros to sustainability projects in the 2024-2026 Industrial Plan. Cementir is rated A- by CDP for both  Climate Change and Water Security and is rated for its ESG performance by all major agencies worldwide. In February 2024 the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) validated both near and long term decarbonization targets of Cementir, judged consistent with the 1.5°C scenario. In addition, SBTi also approved Cementir’s overall net-zero emissions target by 2050.

White cement products help designers and users achieve multiple green building objectives by getting the most out of concrete.  Our products facilitate long lasting, attractive, versatile, durable building elements that don’t need to be coated or covered to look great. 

The reflectivity of white cement concrete reduces the need for artificial light, increases visibility and helps prevent Urban Heat Islands.  Concrete’s thermal mass contributes to lower energy costs by moderating temperature swings. 

Sustainable advantages of white cement in construction
  • Energy saving: reflective surfaces of white concrete enhances natural light, absorb less heat and lowers lighting needs, resulting in savings in lighting and air conditioning.
  • Reduction of heat accumulation: white concrete surfaces contribute to a better environment by reducing the “Heat Island” effect and heat accumulation.
  • Durability and longevity: white and colored concrete and building elements have a high durability and extend the life cycle of building and infrastructure thus reducing maintenance.
  • Visibility and road safety: white concrete is proven to increase visibility in wet conditions and at night, making roadway infrastructure safer. 
  • Speed of construction: special applications such as UHPC and GFRC minimize on-site operations using prefabrication methods. This allows for high speed construction.
  • Strength properties: special applications based on white cement have advanced performances and durability with saving in materials. Constructing a bridge with UHPC requires less materials for enhanced durability and load-bearing capacity.
