WCA - Who We Are

WCA is the original international cement association, founded in 2016 with the aim of representing the interests of the whole industry. Our corporate members are cement producers and of all sizes, from the world’s largest cement group to companies with a single plant. Our associate members represent the wider cement ecosystem including suppliers of technology, services and equipment.

Our focus is on emerging economies, since almost all of the future growth will be in these countries. Furthermore, it will be companies from emerging economies that will shape the future of the industry. At the same time, we recognise the contribution that companies from developed countries will continue to make in addressing the industry’s technical and sustainability challenges and warmly welcome them to become members.

Climate change is one of the preeminent issues of our time, but the world is still far from being on track to achieve the objectives of the Paris Agreement. WCA supports a sustainable cement industry and encourages technical development and other steps to achieve full decarbonization.
