The Roadmap to Carbon Neutrality

America’s cement manufacturers have committed to the goal of reaching carbon neutrality throughout the cement-concrete-construction value chain by 2050. We have been watching the dedication across the board by the cement and concrete industry. The Portland Cement Association’s Roadmap to Carbon Neutrality outlines the opportunities to reach carbon neutrality and companies are now placing actions behind the words. The important feature of the Roadmap is that it involves the entire value chain, starting at the cement plant and extending through the entire life cycle of the built environment.

Part of this action is the realization that the cement and concrete industry cannot do this alone. The plan recognizes that our world is interconnected so we must work together to bring down CO2 emissions from all sources. With this Roadmap, government agencies, non-governmental organizations and academic institutions all have a role along with the cement and concrete industries. This collaboration is supplying various opportunities to help the industry meet its goals. Additionally, new regulations continue to appear nationally and globally to push for carbon neutrality across the cement and concrete industry.

If you haven’t yet, take some time and read through the Roadmap to Carbon Neutrality. They’ve looked into every angle – it’s not just the typical targets and timelines. The plan includes the necessary policies, market innovations, regulatory refinements and funding requirements to make it work. It’s a well thought-out and researched plan. Most importantly, it’s an approach that is embraced by the industry.
