I'm absolutley delighted to announce that Ecocem are now a major sponsor of my Antarctic Expedition, Ecocem are an Irish Owned Organisation who are market leaders in eco-construction and their cement is the world's most sustainable building material. Their impressive resumé includes The Aviva Stadium and the Convention Centre in Dublin.
I am incredibly impressed by their dedication to reducing carbon emissions in the construction industry and their support of my Antarctic Youth Ambassador Programme, and other enviromental and educational initiatives. I am looking forward to working with Conor and all the team at Ecocem over the next 18 months.
"Climate change is an issue that we must all be concerned with. Those of us with greater influence must have greater concern. If an individual in their normal life reduced their emissions by 50% they might save 8 tonnes of CO2 annually (this would require halving their journeys, their heating, their holidays, their food consumption, etc).
If professionals working in the construction industry reduce the emissions of their projects during construction by 50% they can save up to 4,000,000 tonnes of CO2 annually. During the construction peak, if half the cement used was green cement such as Ecocem over 2,000,000 tonnes of CO2 alone would have been saved."
