Pretoria Portland Cement is the corporate embodiment of its product. Through its extensive service offering it ensure sustainability and skills transfer – literally, and figuratively, holding the built environment together.
Cement and concrete are sustainable construction materials supporting urbanisation. The greatest threat to sustainable development has been documented to include:
- population growth
- global warming
- energy use
- excessive waste generation
- limited supply of natural resources
- pollution of air, water, and soil.
Both cement and concrete are excellent and versatile materials used in construction that contribute towards alleviating these threats. Concrete is the second most widely used material, after water, and its use is expected to double in the next few years.
It is an inherent component of our built environment, as it is used in the construction of schools, dams, bridges, airports commercial, and industrial and residential buildings.
