Sustainability is deeply embedded in ACC’s business model. In line with our Sustainable Development 2030 Plan, we focus on the four pillars of Climate, Circular Economy, Water & Nature, and People & Communities. Keeping this in mind, ACC has developed smart solutions for rural and semi-urban development to promote sustainable construction through a business model that provides affordable and green building materials.

Green Building Centre (GBC), a never-before, unique rural-connect initiative, supported by ACC, is a catalyst in rural development and provides local associates with opportunities for rural entrepreneurship and independence. GBC is a sustainable business model designed to provide durable and affordable housing solutions to rural customers, thereby enhancing lives and enabling livelihoods.
