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.
