"As a founder of Rockpore, a company developing low carbon or carbon negative aggregates, I believe that the twin transition between green technology development and digitalization presents an unprecedented opportunity to accelerate the transition to a sustainable future. By leveraging the power of digital tools and technologies, we can optimize our production processes, reduce our carbon footprint, and create more sustainable products that meet the growing demand for environmentally friendly materials. At the same time, the development of green technologies such as carbon negative aggregates will be essential to achieving our collective goal of net-zero emissions by 2050. As a company, we are committed to being at the forefront of this transition and to working collaboratively with other stakeholders to drive progress towards a more sustainable future for all."
