CEMEX says the supplied concrete from its Vertua Plus range may achieve between 50% and 70% fewer emissions than concrete with similar traditional features.

Torrejón Park, located in Madrid, comprises 81 homes with almost zero consumption, which meets the highest market standards with an "A" energy certification. The promotion emphasises water management by reducing and efficient water consumption in homes.

It will have the BREEAM Bueno sustainability certification, which entails a significant reduction in its impact on the environment and greater comfort and health for its users. Additionally, it will recover more than 80% of the construction waste generated, allowing it to become raw material for other projects or processes, positively impacting the circular economy.

Vertua concrete is part of a range of lower CO2 emission products from CEMEX, including cement, concrete, and admixtures. CEMEX R&D developed these technological and innovative products. CEMEX says that, thanks to its technology combining high-quality materials and additions from industrial waste and the use of alternative fuels incorporated in exhaustive energy efficiency processes in its production, they reduce CO2 emissions in the manufacturing process.
