Experts from the International Energy Agency, the CDP (formerly Carbon Disclosure Project), the International Finance Corporation, the World Green Building Council, the EPFL University of Lausanne and Cementis will come together at the GCCF to discuss how the global cement sector can contribute to a carbon-neutral built environment.

The Global Climate Change Forum will start on Thursday, 28 June with an opening speech by Zhiping Song, President of the WCA.

The discussions will be followed by a review of the priorities for joint action and the presentation of the WCA Climate Change Roadmap which the CEOs and Leaders of the WCA Membership will develop in a separate meeting.
