Deconstruct join the ConcreteZero initiative by the Climate Group

Partnering with ConcreteZero, Deconstruct signal a dedicated pursuit of a public net-zero concrete commitment. Given their reliance on concrete in most projects, they’ve set ambitious goals — 30% low-emission concrete by 2025, escalating to 50% by 2030.


ConcreteZero’s expertise guides us, not only in achieving sustainability goals but also in future-proofing our business. Mindful of economic impacts, we ensure our sustainability efforts are both environmentally conscious and economically viable. This partnership signifies a transformative journey towards sustainable construction, where ecological responsibility aligns seamlessly with economic prudence. Together, we’re setting a benchmark for sustainable practices in the construction industry.

Adopting a game-changing methodology

Deconstruct proudly embraces the groundbreaking concept of ConcreteZero, revolutionising construction to eliminate carbon emissions and minimise environmental impact. This paradigm shift tackles a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions — traditional cement production.

Through advanced technologies and sustainable materials, Deconstruct are significantly reducing the carbon footprint of concrete. Their approach includes carbon capture techniques, renewable energy sources, and alternative cementitious materials, aiming for a carbon-neutral or even carbon-negative outcome without compromising strength and durability.

ConcreteZero holds great potential for combating climate change, offering a sustainable future. By adopting this game-changing methodology, Deconstruct work with minimal environmental impact, mitigating global warming effects.

De Group Contracting are thrilled for our sister company as they take part in this transformative movement, and they invite key stakeholders to join in pursuing ConcreteZero. Together, let’s collaborate, innovate, and build a greener, cleaner, and more sustainable world.

Deconstruct are also SteelZero members, playing their part in reducing emissions and carbon footprint, as well as further adopting circular economy principles associated with the steelwork sector.
