The industry has already made progress with proportionate reductions of CO2 emissions in cement production of 20% over the last three decades. This roadmap highlights a significant acceleration of decarbonisation measures achieving the same reduction in only a decade. From 2030 decarbonisation accelerates further to reach the net zero destination in 2050.
Total global CO2 emissions from the sector today are in excess of 2.5Gt. They are primarily direct CO2 emissions which in turn are primarily from the heated limestone itself (approx. 60%) and combustion of the fuels used in the cement kiln and other plant processes (approx. 40%). Electricity used by the sector contributes further CO2 emissions as shown.READ MORE

The cement industry was the first sector to monitor and publicly report its CO2 emissions on a global level. We have done so for the past 20 years and transparently continue to do so today.READ MORE
In this key decade, we will accelerate our CO2 reductions through the following actions and initiatives.READ MORE
In this period, we will continue to build on the progress in the previous decade.READ MORE
