Cemex Colombia has introduced a new Vertua lower carbon mortar with a reduced carbon footprint of up to 40%.

This was achieved using more sustainable raw materials, better cementitious materials, and a more efficient production process.

Mortars are binding agents that use cement to hold together bricks, concrete blocks, and other masonry materials. Specialty mortars can be used to install materials such as ceramic and tile. Mortar is essential to many construction projects, particularly for building renovations. Cemex offers a wide range of mortars in its markets worldwide as part of its Urbanisation Solutions business.

This mortar is part of the Vertua family of high-quality construction products, designed to have a positive impact on the planet. Vertua seeks to allow builders to tailor their projects' sustainable characteristics through its five specific and measurable attributes: lower carbon, energy efficiency, water conservation, recycled materials, and design optimisation.

Vertua is a part of Cemex’s Future in Action programme, which focuses on achieving sustainable excellence through climate action, circularity, and natural resource management with the primary objective of becoming a net-zero CO2 company by 2050.
