Carbon Neutrality

Reaching climate neutrality along the cement and concrete value chain by 2050

The European Cement Association based in Brussels is the representative organisation of the cement industry in Europe. Currently, its Full Members are the national cement industry associations and cement companies of the European Union (except for Malta and Slovakia) plus the UK, Norway, Switzerland and Turkey. Croatia and Serbia are Associate Members of CEMBUREAU. A cooperation agreement has been concluded with Vassiliko Cement in Cyprus and the Cement Association of Ukraine.

The Association acts as spokesperson for the cement industry before the EU institutions and other public authorities, and communicates the industry’s views on all issues and policy developments regarding technical, environmental, energy, employee health and safety and sustainability issues. In addition to the EU, permanent dialogue is maintained with other international organisations (e.g. OECD, IEA), the Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA) and sister associations in other parts of the world.

The cement sector’s efforts to reduce its environmental footprint and support a carbon neutral economy are further explained on our Low-carbon economy website.
