Canada’s cement industry is leading the way in the fight to tackle climate change by joining the country’s Net-Zero Challenge.
The voluntary initiative is led by the Canadian government and encourages businesses to develop and implement credible and effective plans to transition their facilities and operations to net-zero emissions by 2050.
“Climate change is our industry’s most significant challenge. It is also our greatest opportunity. By charting a credible, transparent path to net-zero emissions, our industry continues its history of leadership in building the sustainable world of tomorrow,” said Adam Auer, president and CEO, Cement Association of Canada.
“We are proud to be a founding participant in the Net-Zero Challenge as just one example of our pursuit of proactive partnerships with governments, the construction sector and civil society groups to support the ambitious and science based imperative of reducing carbon emissions to net-zero by 2050,” Auer concluded.
