On 19 November, The Concrete Initiative launched the results of a study by consulting group Le Bipe, focusing on the multiplier effect of the cement and concrete industry on Europe's economy. The study clearly concludes that this important industry contributes to local growth and jobs in a low carbon economy. in fact, for every € generated in this sector, €2.8 are generated elsewhere in the economy. Here you will find a brief summary of the results of this study as well as a direct link to the study itself.

Latest news

Brussels 16 March 2016 – CEMBUREAU has taken note of the report published today by Sandbag, focusing on cement and the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EU-ETS). In this regard, we partly share the views of Sandbag such as the need for innovation funding to stimulate breakthrough technologies, a closer alignment between allocation and production in the form of a dynamic allocation and a stronger recognition of the role of alternative fuel and raw material use in emission reductions, with the inclusion of a landfill ban on recoverable and recyclable raw materials.
