GCCA calls on governments and policymakers to step up to the plate

15 October 2021, Published under Cement News

The time has come for policymakers, governments, investors, researchers and customers to play their part in achieving net zero concrete by 2050, according to Jan Jenisch, CEO of Holcim Group, speaking at the Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA) 2050 Net Zero Roadmap presentation this week. "We now need governments around the world to work with us and use their huge procurement power to advocate for low-carbon concrete in their infrastructure and housing needs," added Thomas Guill...

The PCA releases its Roadmap to Carbon Neutrality

13 October 2021, Published under Cement News

The Portland Cement Association (PCA) has announced its Roadmap to Carbon Neutrality, an ambitious journey to carbon neutrality across the cement and concrete value chain by 2050. The roadmap demonstrates how the US cement and concrete industry, along with its entire value chain, can address climate change, decrease GHGs and eliminate barriers that are restricting environmental progress. “Cement and concrete have been pivotal in building resilient, durable and sustainable communities that...

GCCA accelerates global CO2 emission reduction

12 October 2021, Published under Cement News

Forty of the world’s leading cement and concrete manufacturers have joined forces to accelerate the shift to greener concrete by pledging to cut CO 2 emissions by a further 25 per cent by 2030, marking a decisive step in the race to ‘Net Zero’ concrete by 2050, says the Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA)   The move by the members of the GCCA marks the biggest global commitment by an industry to net zero so far – bringing together companies from the Americas, Africa, As...

The IEA's comprehensive roadmap to net-zero energy by 2050

21 May 2021, Published under Cement News

The International Energy Agency (IEA) has released a net-zero by 2050 roadmap. The IEA believes the world has a viable pathway to building a global energy sector with net-zero greenhouse gas emissions in 2050, but it is narrow and requires immediate action across all countries to begin an unprecedented transformation of how energy is produced, transported and used worldwide, according to the agency’s new landmark report.  'Net-Zero by 2050: A Roadmap for the global energy sector ' i s ...

California Nevada Cement Association describes pathways to net zero carbon operation

06 April 2021, Published under Cement News

The California Nevada Cement Association (CNCA) envisions three major pathways for the industry to attain net zero carbon operation by 2045. The roadmap required reducing production process emissions, reducing combustion emissions through fuel switching and increasing distributed electricity generation.   "Releasing this industry-wide roadmap is an exciting and critical step toward carbon neutrality," says CNCA Executive Director, Tom Tietz. "However, we cannot get to net zero alone and t...

UK Concrete and cement industry launches 'Roadmap to beyond Net Zero'

06 October 2020, Published under Cement News

The UK concrete and cement industry has launched a roadmap to become net negative by 2050, removing more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere than it emits each year.   The UK Concrete, part of the Mineral Products Association (MPA), has identified that net zero can be met through decarbonised electricity and transport networks, fuel switching, greater use of low-carbon cements and concretes as well as carbon capture, usage or storage (CCUS) technology for cement manufacture.   The 'R...

CEMBUREAU's Carbon Neutrality Roadmap to reduce CO2 to net zero by 2050

13 May 2020, Published under Cement News

CEMBUREAU's Carbon Neutrality Roadmap (CNR) looks at how the European cement industry can reduce its carbon emissions by 2050, and align with the objectives of the European Green Deal. It demonstrates that reaching net zero emissions along the cement and concrete value chain is achievable by 2050. Experts from the European cement industry have looked in detail at the role of key technologies in reducing emissions at each stage of the cement and concrete value chain. CO 2 emissions can inde...

CEMBUREAU to seek carbon neutrality along cement's value chain by 2050

16 January 2020, Published under Cement News

Following a reassessment of the targets set out in its 2050 Low Carbon Roadmap (2013/18)  the Association of the European cement industry (CEMBUREAU) will make a decisive contribution to the European Green Deal, striving for carbon neutrality along the cement and concrete value chain by 2050, said the organisation in a statement. CEMBUREAU will publish a revised low-carbon roadmap setting out the key role of cement and concrete in the circular economy and a path to achieving carbon neutr...

New CSI-IEA cement technology roadmap offers strategy for 24% cut in CO2 emissions

06 April 2018, Published under Cement News

The Cement Sustainability Initiative (CSI) and International Energy Agency (IEA) have published a new technology roadmap, Low-Carbon Transition in the Cement Industry, to update the first global cement roadmap produced in 2009.
