We are a multinational Group operating in the building materials sector. With operations in 18 countries, production capacity of over 13 million tonnes between white and grey cement, we sell around 10 million tonnes of aggregates every year, 5 million cubic meters of ready-mix concrete and we represent a reference point both in the construction and maintenance of infrastructures as well as in residential and commercial construction.
We are world leaders in white cement, the only producer of cement in Denmark and of concrete in the Scandinavian area, the third largest player in Belgium and among the main international grey cement operators in Turkey. We operate in Belgium one of the largest aggregate quarries in Europe, with 10 million tonnes extracted each year. In Turkey and the United Kingdom, we are active in the treatment of urban and industrial waste that we use to produce waste-derived fuel for our cement plants.
We have set ambitious targets to reduce our CO2 emissions that have been independently verified by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and judged consistent with the goal of keeping warming well below 2°C. We have defined a 10-year Roadmap committing funds of around 97 million euros in the period 2022-2024 to sustainability projects, including large-scale production of low carbon footprint sustainable products such as FUTURECEMTM, which reduces CO2 emissions by 30%, the use of alternative raw materials and fuels, or more sustainable fuels such as natural gas, investments aimed at reducing the consumption of thermal energy and electricity in our plants in Denmark and Belgium.
With Cementir 4.0 we have given impetus to the extensive use of digital technology in our production processes with the aim of maintaining the operational excellence and attention to detail that distinguish us throughout the entire value chain, from the extraction of limestone to use of raw materials and alternative fuels in clinker production, to the creation of semi-finished and finished products with lower environmental impact.
