Skanska and the building materials supplier Cemex have launched the low-emission concrete Vertua.

This material was used for the first time on a large scale in the construction of the developer’s office building P180 in Warsaw. Concrete accounts for 56 percent of the carbon footprint of building materials compared to steel, aluminum, glass and ceramics. The production of Vertua concrete has 42 percent lower CO2 emissions. The P180 building is being built in Warsaw next to the Wilanowska metro station. So far, almost 3,500 m3 of low-emission concrete has been used as part of the project.

For us, the “green revolution” is not just a trendy slogan, it is real and consistently implemented solutions. For many years this has been an important part of Skanska’s business – the way we design and build. It also directly reflects the values ​​of our company. We are actively looking for new partners who offer construction solutions to reduce our negative impact on the environment. A good example of this is our collaboration with Cemex and the use of low-emission concrete in the construction of P180.
