The World Cement Association Presents

Global Climate Change Forum in Paris - 27th & 28th June

Join the WCA Global Climate Change Forum to accelerate progress to a low carbon built environment.

As President of the World Cement Association, I call on the cement industry to take greater initiative in proactively tackling problems it is likely to face in the years ahead, especially in the all-important area of climate change.

The World Cement Association is proud to start this collective action and to invite you to its first Global Climate Change Forum that will take place in Paris on 27th and 28th June 2018.

After a first day dedicated to the WCA Climate Change Roadmap (for WCA members only), the second day will welcome high level international speakers who will trigger a lively debate on required actions from our sector.

So, join us in Paris. Your contribution is a must to transform transition into « Actions not words ».
