One Group, Concretely Dynamic.
We are a multinational Group with registered offices in the Netherlands operating in the building materials sector. With operations in 18 countries, production capacity of over 13 million tons between white and grey cement, we sell around 10 million tons of aggregates every year, 5 million cubic meters of ready-mix concrete and we represent a reference point both in the construction and maintenance of infrastructures as well as in residential and commercial construction.
We are world leaders in white cement, the only producer of cement in Denmark and of concrete in the Scandinavian area, the third largest player in Belgium and among the main international grey cement operators in Turkey. We operate in Belgium one of the largest aggregate quarries in Europe, with 10 million tons extracted each year. In Turkey and the United Kingdom, we are active in the treatment of urban and industrial waste that we use to produce waste-derived fuel for our cement plants.
We have defined a sustainability strategy aimed at reducing CO2 emissions by 30% by 2030, defining a 10-year Roadmap and committing 107 million euros to sustainability projects in the 2021-2023 Industrial Plan. These include wind energy production and district heating in Denmark, investments to reduce thermal energy and electricity consumption in plants in Denmark and Belgium. Thanks to the introduction of new value-added products and technologies such as FUTURECEMTM we will significantly reduce the clinker content of our cements. In July 2021, the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) validated Cementir’s CO2 emission reduction targets, judged to be consistent with the ‘well below 2˚C’ objective.
With Cementir 4.0 we have given impetus to the extensive use of digital technology in our production processes with the aim of maintaining the operational excellence and attention to detail that distinguish us throughout the entire value chain, from the extraction of limestone to use of raw materials and alternative fuels in clinker production, to the creation of semi-finished and finished products with lower environmental impact.
