International Women's Day
Every year on March 8th, we celebrate International Women's Day. Historically, the construction and technology-oriented industries have been male-dominated, but more and more women are making their mark in this field. Women in construction have faced many challenges, including discrimination and the assumption that they are not (physically) capable of doing the job. At Cordeel Group, we believe that female presence is essential for creating a more diverse and inclusive workplace. However, we would like to see a lot more women to join our teams! By placing some strong women at the forefront today, we want to recognize and support their contributions and encourage more women to pursue a career at Cordeel Group.

C-concrete signs first Flemish Concrete Agreement
Worldwide, construction is mainly done with concrete. It therefore accounts for a significant proportion of total CO2 emissions. For instance, the production of cement alone accounts for as much as 7% of global emissions. However, concrete is 100% recyclable if it is released in a sufficiently pure form during demolition. The production of green and circular concrete is on the rise, but an acceleration is needed. With the Flemish Concrete Agreement, the industry wants to remove administrative and technical obstacles to realise this ambition.
