The cement industry is one of the most energy-intensive sectors in Europe. Its decarbonisation is crucial to support the Paris Agreement and help deliver the EU 2030 Energy and Climate goals. Standards can help by providing methods to calculate greenhouse gas emission levels. Many existing standards must be updated to enable the use of more environmentally friendly options now available.
Our goal is to decarbonise energy-intensive industries such as cement and concrete through robust standards that promote new, innovative and low GHG emitting products and processes.
