The role of cement in the
2050 Low Carbon Economy

Five Parallel Routes

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. The first 3 routes are quantified in this roadmap.  The final ‘product efficiency’ and ‘downstream’ routes look at how cement and concrete can contribute to a low carbon society, providing a connection from this roadmap to the construction sector.
