On 2 July the Commission published a Circular economy package including the communication “Toward a circular economy: A zero waste programme for Europe” (COM(2014 398 final).

Publications

In July 2013 three strategic directions were set out for the association: (i) continue to protect and defend our industry; (ii) promote concrete as a material of choice in sustainable construction and (iii) create a compelling case and broad alignment on the need for a competitive, local cement and concrete industry.
On 25 September 2013, CEMBUREAU unveiled its vision of what the cement industry could potentially achieve on the road to a low carbon economy of the future.
