France: Cemex France has inaugurated a multi-service green building materials outlet and recycling centre at Genevilliers in Paris, Île-de-France. The company says that the facility will stock its reduced-CO2 Vertua concrete range. It will also receive construction waste, excavated earth and rubble for use in concrete production or resale as aggregates. The company will offer complete traceability of waste received, and non-recyclable waste will be used in quarry restoration.
France North director of materials Alain Plantier said, "Developing construction in high-growth urban locations requires circular economy solutions which mitigate climate change and save natural resources while improving the wellbeing of inhabitants." He added “Cemex is uniquely positioned to provide integrated solutions for building and maintaining more sustainable and resilient cities, and this new site demonstrates this perfectly. Clients in Paris need low-carbon construction solutions which perform throughout their life cycle. Working together with our clients, this site will help to reduce the carbon footprint of new projects in line with Cemex’s Future In Action strategy – committed to net zero CO2.”
