Position papers

On 16 March 2015, CEMBUREAU responded to a public consultation on revision of the EU Emission Trading System (EU-ETS) Directive. In its response, the Association advocates a post-2020 improved EU-ETS that creates a predictable legal framework and ensures a stable long term globally equalised carbon price to foster investments in low carbon technologies and eliminates carbon leakage risk.

In Europe, there is still a large amount of waste which cannot be recycled. Fortunately, there are several other solutions available for this waste - and co-processing in the cement industry is one of them!

In July 2013 three strategic directions were set out for the association: (i) continue to protect and defend our industry; (ii) promote concrete as a material of choice in sustainable construction and (iii) create a compelling case and broad alignment on the need for a competitive, local cement and concrete industry.

This 2050 roadmap is based on 5 parallel routes that can each contribute to lowering emissions related to cement production, as well as concrete production.
