CEMBUREAU’s response to the public consultation for the EU climate ambition for 2030

24/06/2020

CEMBUREAU welcomes the opportunity to comment on the EU’s climate ambition for 2030.

CEMBUREAU, the European Cement Association, is determined to contribute strongly to the EU’s vision for a carbon neutral society by 2050 and supports the objectives of the European Green Deal.

CEMBUREAU has published its own carbon neutrality roadmap, which looks at achieving net zero emissions down the cement and concrete value chain by 2050. The cement industry has reduced its emissions by 15% since 1990 and the new Roadmap includes an aspirational 30% objective for CO2 emissions reduction in cement (40% when including the full cement and concrete value chain) at a 2030 horizon.
