Date: Wednesday, October 16th

Venue: TownHall Europe, Brussels (hybrid event)


In the wake of the 2024 European election, calls have multiplied to highlight the need for an EU industrial policy alongside the Green Deal. Whilst the coming months will be dedicated to the forming of the next College of Commissioners, the decarbonisation of industrial sectors, as well as industrial competitiveness, are likely to top the European agenda for the coming years.

As the European cement industry, we have published our updated Net Zero Roadmap in May 2024. CEMBUREAU’s Net Zero Roadmap looks at an increased ambition for the decarbonisation of the EU cement industry, in light of ongoing investments. It also sets out the indispensable policies to achieve this ambition.

The intention of this year’s event is to focus on bringing industrial decarbonisation forward – where should industrial policy fit in the upcoming Commission’s agenda? What actions are needed to bring forward investments at EU and national level? What are the concrete obstacles to investments? How can we foster cooperation throughout the value chain to facilitate decarbonisation?

The event will provide a platform for EU policy makers and stakeholders to exchange ideas on the above questions, key policies and approach to fast forward decarbonisation investments in Europe’s industries.


List of confirmed speakers:

  • Mechthild Wörsdörfer, Deputy Director-General, DG ENER, European Commission
  • Rachael Moore, PhD, Managing Director at CarbStrat
