Claude Loréa has been appointed Cement Director of the Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA). Loréa’s appointment comes as GCCA commits to prioritising sustainability, and her role will include overseeing the inclusion of the Cement Sustainability Initiative’s activities to the GCCA.

Currently Deputy Chief Executive and Industrial Affairs Director at European cement industry body, CEMBUREAU, Loréa said she is “honoured to be taking on this exciting new role at the GCCA, working in a sector in which I truly believe. I look forward to using the skills and knowledge I have developed over the years with CEMBUREAU and its members to ensure that the cement and concrete industry evolves at a global level in a sustainable manner within an appropriate framework and through advances in efficiency and technology.”

“Claude has exceptional technical expertise in cement production and a strong background in industry advocacy. This experience will be immensely valuable as GCCA builds its cement sustainability work programme,” said incoming Chief Executive of GCCA, Benjamin Sporton.
