Cement Industry works towards net-zero efficiency

The Cement Association of Canada (CAC) has set out an action plan to ensure Canada's cement and concrete industry achieves its carbon emissions reduction goals by making cement net-zero by 2050. Created together with its members and partners in the concrete sector, its ‘Concrete Zero, an Action Plan’ charts a course towards achieving its goal of 40% emissions reduction by 2030 as part of the ‘Roadmap to Net-Zero Carbon Concrete by 2050’ – a joint government-industry collaboration. It is also on its way to transitioning to lower-carbon fuel sources, producing carbon-reduced cements and concretes, and using clean technologies. The cement and concrete industry has also joined Canada's Net Zero Challenge – where members will transparently disclose and verify carbon emission reductions. CAC, its members, and partners will also advocate for performance-based codes, standards, specifications, procurement policies, and increased material efficiency in construction.
