Global construction materials company Cemex has recently announced its collection of renovation solutions for energy efficient building improvements.

“The renovation of existing buildings can lead to significant energy savings for all, as buildings account for over 40% of energy consumed. More than 220 [million] buildings in Europe representing approximately 85% of the building stock built before 2021 will mostly still be standing in 2050, yet currently only 1% of buildings undergo energy-efficient renovation every year,” said Steve Crompton, Director of Quality and Product Technology, Materials West Europe, Cemex.

“The energy performance of buildings is a major area for improvement in public policies, for new build and the renovation of the existing stock. From residential housing to public buildings and urban schemes, across the board we’re demonstrating to our customers that by improving the built environment, we can significantly improve our natural environment too.

“Concrete has a critical role to play in the transition to a Low-Carbon Economy. We have the aspiration to deliver net zero CO2 concrete globally by 2050, which will contribute to the development of climate-smart urban projects, sustainable buildings, and climate resilient infrastructures. By bringing together a comprehensive range of sustainable products that support the important area of retrofit, we are offering our customers easy access to the right products for the job whilst keeping the environment front of mind.”

By providing a comprehensive range for sustainable refurbishment and energy efficient renovation, the company reports that it is committed to preserving the U.K.’s building stock for future generations. The drive to restore, maintain and improve is resulting in better buildings with greater resilience to the impacts of climate change, says Cemex.
