The World Cement Association (WCA) has announced that global innovative technology services corporation, Shanghai Yicheng Juxin Construction Technology Co., Ltd., has joined as an Associate Corporate Member.
The Chinese organisation is a specialised construction technology firm providing advanced materials, green and low carbon technology, and professional design to construction companies. Shanghai Yicheng Juxin adopts advanced production technology and collaborates with top architectural design teams to provide innovative solutions for clients that deal with projects of customised facades, prefabricated elements, landmark buildings, tunnels, high-speed rail, and marine engineering. The organisation also cooperates with universities and the world’s top 500 enterprises, conducting studies and research on the promotion and application of new materials and new technologies.
Environmental protection is a key part of the Shanghai Yicheng Juxin’s vision and, as such, it seeks to promote green, low-carbon, and efficient materials that can protect the environment against industrial harm, in China’s demanding infrastructure sector. It places great importance on its global carbon strategy and emphasises low carbon emissions, ultra-high-performance products and new architectural aesthetics, to help clients achieve environmental, sustainable, energy-saving and aesthetically pleasing projects.
“The most important goal we have as a hard to abate sector now is reducing the environmental impact of cement, and construction material providers have a huge role to play in this, particularly when it comes to encouraging adoption of advanced building materials and technologies that will be vital in ensuring progress towards a net-zero cement industry’’, explains Ian Riley, CEO at WCA. “I am therefore very pleased to be welcoming Shanghai Yicheng Juxin, a global leader in this field, and am confident their insights and experience will be of great value to our members in helping to tackle the major challenges that we face.”
“The journey towards decarbonisation is hard but not unachievable, so long as we work together to bring about a sustainable future for the construction industry, in which cement and concrete play such a vital role,” says Shanghai Yicheng Juxin. “We look forward to collaborating with WCA and its members, to improve industry standards, promote emerging technologies and increase the chance of evolving a healthy construction ecosystem”.
