In its Green Deal published in late 2019, the EU recognised the cement sector as indispensable to Europe’s economy, as a supplier to several key value chains. Indeed, we agree, and believe our industry is an enabler for a Green Deal. For a summary of how we are contributing to the Green Deal, read our leaflet here.
Ready for Climate Neutrality
As outlined in our Roadmap, and through our 5C Approach, the European cement industry aims to achieve carbon neutrality along the cement-concrete value chain by 2050. We are ready!

As key construction materials for renewable energy equipment, sustainable buildings and mass transit transport, cement and concrete offer the opportunity to accelerate the creation of a carbon-neutral Europe.

The cement industry is a leader in the circular economy, through the use of a variety of waste streams as alternative fuel and raw materials in our production processes and down the value chain, where concrete is a fully recyclable product.

Whilst our quarries provide the materials for our products, protecting and preserving the ecosystems living in and around them remains key. We are proud of our efforts in rehabilitating extracted land and turning it into forests, lakes and grassland so various species can thrive.
