LeadIT, GCCA Unveil Green Cement Technology Tracker

The World Economic Forum-backed Leadership Group for Industry Transition (LeadIT) and the Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA) have launched the Green Cement Technology Tracker to help policymakers, industry stakeholders, academics and the public monitor worldwide decarbonization efforts in the cement industry. 

“In order to empower the industry and policymakers committed to emission reductions, our goal is to provide comprehensive tracking of public announcements of investments in low-carbon cement technologies,” said Per Andersson, head of the secretariat – LeadIT.

The tracker currently includes Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) and Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (CCUS) projects, which comprise 36% of planned reduction levers in the GCCA 2050 Roadmap for Net Zero Carbon Concrete. Future steps to enhance the tool include expanding its scope to cover more technologies that reduce emissions from cement manufacturing.

“Unleashing technology such as CCUS is key to achieving our net zero mission,” said GCCA Chief Executive Thomas Guillot. “Carbon capture pilots, projects and announcements are picking up pace across the world. This technology works, and our next goal is to scale up, working with stakeholders such as governments and the investment community to help transform the industry worldwide.”
