The Global Cement and Concrete Association’s search for a Director of Communications and Policy.

The world is rapidly changing, by 2050 the global population is expected to reach 9 billion. Over the course of the next 15 years it is predicted that an additional 1.1 billion people will move into urban, city environments. This is a remarkable shift and requires construction and growth on an unprecedented scale. Cement and Concrete, the world’s most used manmade product, will be pivotal in providing the solution to the challenges caused by such growth. Importantly, it is a material which is environmentally sustainable, durable and resilient.


Launched in January 2018, the Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA) is dedicated to developing and strengthening the sector’s contribution to sustainable construction.
