ACC Ltd, leading cement manufacturer in the country, has opened Green Building Centre at Mancherial in Telangana. Through this centre, the company is aiming to mentor upcoming entrepreneurs who can take on the challenge of producing excellent and durable construction material across India. The GBC will promote sustainable construction, low-cost housing development and utilisation of resources while conserving the ecosystem.

The GBC will support rural and semi-urban areas located within its 50-kilometre radius. Local people have been trained to produce various types of concrete products along with fly ash bricks using sustainable construction practices.

As against the traditional bricks which use large quantities of fertile top soil in their manufacture, fly ash bricks are made with fly ash which is an industrial by-product and thus conserves valuable natural resources.

ACC Limited is India’s foremost manufacturer of cement and ready mixed concrete with 17 modern cement factories, more than 57 ready mixed concrete plants, a vast distribution network of over 10,000 dealers and a countrywide spread of sales offices.

In 2005, ACC Limited along with Ambuja Cements Limited became a part of the reputable Holcim group of Switzerland. In 2015 Holcim Limited and Lafarge SA came together in a merger of equals to form LafargeHolcim – the new world leader in the building materials industry.
