Canada, Cement Industry Publish Net Zero Roadmap

Through a partnership with the government, the Cement Association of Canada (CAC) has released the Roadmap to Net Zero Carbon Concrete by 2050. 

The document provides guidance on the technologies, tools and policies needed for the Canadian cement industry to achieve net zero carbon emissions while ensuring it remains competitive in a global net zero economy. 

The roadmap was spearheaded by a joint government-industry working group, co-led by CAC and Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada. The working group includes key players from the federal government, the Canadian cement and concrete industry, and relevant environmental experts.

“While we are steadfast in our commitment to reduce our emissions by 15 Mt cumulatively by 2030 and reach true net zero by 2050, we know we can’t do it alone,” said CAC President and CEO Adam Auer. “Together in collaboration with government we will continue to support the innovation and investment needed on our path to delivering net-zero concrete, while at the same time preserving its properties as a durable, resilient, versatile, and cost-effective material. 

“Working together, Canada’s cement and concrete industry will remain competitive throughout the low-carbon transition, delivering emissions reductions while supporting jobs in communities across the country,” he concluded.
