CEMBUREAU response: Public consultation on sustainable buildings

On 1 October 2013, CEMBUREAU responded to a European Commission consultation on sustainable buildings. Whilst the Association welcomes this initiative, it is nonetheless concerned that the approach taken may be too narrow in focus.

Latest release
With the right regulatory framework, we can play a pioneering role in construction

In its recently published Activity Report for 2012, CEMBUREAU highlights that the world’s cement production in 2012 was estimated at 3.6bn tonnes which is a 3% increase compared to 2011. China experienced a year-on-year increase of +3.6% and now represents 59.3% of global cement production. Without taking into account China, global cement production increased by 1.8% which represented a further slowdown compared to the 2.8% growth rate registered in 2011.
