The move to Climate Neutrality by 2050
On 12th May 2020, CEMBUREAU published its new Carbon Neutrality Roadmap setting out its ambition to reach net zero Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions along the cement and concrete value chain by 2050, in line with the European Green Deal. Highlighted within the Roadmap are the technical pathways which our sector and our downstream users can follow to reach climate neutrality. Further research and development are currently underway for some of these technologies and large-scale demonstration projects (TRL 7/8) will need to be implemented between now and 2030 to enable the role out needed across our sector before 2050.
A few examples of these technical pathways can be found in the pages below together with examples of innovation projects.
CEMBUREAU has developed an interactive map which currently portrays a total of 53 projects spread over the European territory. It provides a brief description of each project, including the project types and key partners, in addition to its geographical location.
