Global Net-Zero Accelerator

National technology and policy roadmaps

The Net Zero Roadmap Accelerator was started in early 2022 to help national cement and concrete industries decarbonise, in line with the 2050 GCCA Net Zero Global Roadmap.

This launch was the start of the national and regional phase of the GCCA Roadmap, focusing on local action and policymaking to help the cement and concrete industry achieve its decarbonisation commitments.

The accelerators involve working with local industry and policymakers, to identify the local levers and challenges and recommending key actions, to implement the global roadmap levers on a regional basis. This includes encouraging government policies that can have an immediate impact, such as better recycling, the use of waste as an alternative to fossil fuels, and other circular economy practices. It also includes identifying lighthouse projects that can eliminate emissions over the next decades, such as carbon capture utilisation and storage technologies.

Roadmaps have been completed or are soon to be complete in Thailand, Egypt, New Zealand, India, Colombia, Brazil and Chile. Action has commenced in Morocco, Nigeria, Tanzania and the UAE. We are also working with colleagues in Turkey, where EBRD are funding a cement focused roadmap. Discussions have also progressed in China, Philippines, Indonesia, Tunisia, Kenya, Senegal and South Africa.
