The World Cement Association (WCA) announced a knowledge partnership with Decarb Connect, an organization which supports the scale and acceleration of industrial carbonization.
As Knowledge Partners, Decarb Connect provides access to hard-to-reach information in terms of introductions and solutions, and facilitates network relationships across the industry. Accordingly, WCA members benefit from special ticket pricing and also are secure in the knowledge that they have an advocate representing their views within the wider Decarb Connect program.
“Under these challenging and uncertain circumstances, it’s more important than ever to collaborate with a wide range of organizations and individuals for mutual benefit by sharing expertise, building relationships in other sectors and supporting industry around the world,” said Ian Riley, CEO at WCA. “We’re therefore especially pleased with this partnership as it will give us the opportunity to connect with decarbonization leaders in other fields that need to approach the path to net zero and explore a range of ongoing initiatives.”
Riley will speak at the Decarb Connect Digital Festival, January 26-28, 2021, sharing evidence-based strategies and road maps that will encourage and inspire all stakeholders to follow the net-zero challenge. Knowledge Partners support not only the goals of the Decarb Connect Digital Festival, but have also contributed to the structure and content of the event.
“Through the digital festival and network our goal is to shine a light on the international projects and strategies that are already achieving results in energy intensive sectors like cement and aggregates,” said Alex Cameron, founder and CEO of Decarb Connect. “Right from the start, the WCA has been supportive of our plans and it’s clear that their commitment to helping their worldwide membership deliver on carbon commitments makes them an ideal partner. We really look forward to partnering with them and ensuring that members reap the benefits.”
