Investing In Low Carbon Construction Startups - A Chat With Cemex Ventures President Gonzalo Galindo
Play • 27 min

Concrete and the built environment have an enormous carbon footprint.

To find out more about how companies in that space are innovating to reduce emissions, I invited Gonzalo Galindo, president of Cemex Ventures to come on the podcast to talk about what they're doing. Cemex Ventures is the VC arm of Cemex, one of the world's largest cement companies, and its VC arm is looking into startups that help lower the carbon footprint of concrete.

We had a fascinating conversation covering why decarbonisation is becoming an area of increasing importance for construction companies, what they're doing about it, and some of the more interesting companies Cemex Ventures has uncovered and invested in.

This was an excellent episode of the podcast and I learned loads as always, and I hope you do too.
