Climate Actions

The Cement Sustainability Initiative's (CSI) “Climate Actions” publication details the results of industry efforts to address major sustainability challenges. These include: a sector-specific CO2 Accounting and Reporting Protocol, a global database of cement plant energy and emissions performance, a new approach to the Clean Development Mechanism, and ways in which the cement industry could be a specific sector in the new global, post-2012 international climate framework.
Effective and transparent monitoring, reporting and verification of carbon dioxide emissions are key to climate protection. The CSI has made steady progress over the past eight years with consistent reductions in emissions intensity, i.e., reducing CO2 emissions per tonne of cement produced.
Between 1990 and 2006, CSI members reduced by 12% their average CO2 emissions intensity. Since 2006 all members have been required to have their CO2 data audited and verified by an independent third party.
The encouraging progress made by members in measuring, reporting and mitigating CO2 and other emissions is the driver behind current CSI contributions to the development of more effective international climate protection policies.
But these contributions are only possible because of key building blocks developed during the past eight years: a common measuring and reporting protocol, external assurance of emission reports, a global database of plant-specific energy and emissions performance, and company-set emissions reduction targets.
