HeidelbergCement and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) have signed an agreement on a three-year collaboration to exchange scientific and technical knowledge, according to a company press release.

HeidelbergCement has pledged to lower specific CO2 emissions by 30 per cent by 2030 in comparison to 1990 levels. This agreement is an attempt to further that goal by exploring solutions in CO2 reduction alongside EMBL. This will be achieved through a series of conferences and workshops involving both organisations.

"We are delighted to be partnering with EMBL, one of the world’s leading research institutions for molecular biology, to jointly explore innovative approaches to fight climate change. This will further strengthen our competence and our commitment to reduce the environmental footprint of our business", said Dr Bernd Scheifele, chairman of the Managing Board at HeidelbergCement AG.
