A five-route roadmap details how European Cement Association members and customers can reduce their industry’s carbon dioxide emissions from a 1990 level of 170 million metric tons to 34 million metric tons by 2050. Routes under cement sector control are Resource Efficiency, Energy Efficiency, plus Carbon Sequestration and Reuse; two others, Product Efficiency and Downstream, target low-carbon concretes, smart buildings and infrastructure, concrete recycling and sustainable construction.
