Innovation Challenge Brings Members, Startups Together to Address Climate Change

This initiative should speed new technologies' reduction of their carbon footprint

For a second year, a leading industry association has launched an innovation challenge that connects startups with member companies to address climate change.

The Innovandi Open Challenge, run by the Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA), is part of the association's strategic goal of net-zero emissions from concrete by 2050. According to GCCA Cement Director and Head of Innovation Claude Loréa, concrete accounts for 7 percent of global CO2 emissions.

"Innovation is a priority of our sector to achieve the net-zero target," Loréa said. "There are a certain number of what I call known levers and technologies that we are trying to push further. We can’t afford not to work on all options to foster innovation."
