Sustainability - Sustainable production

Energy usage

Cement manufacturing is an energy intensive process, indeed energy represents 40% of the industry’s variable costs.

Collectively the cement manufacturers exceeded government agreed targets of improving specific energy consumption by 26.6% over 1990 levels ahead of schedule, recording an actual reduction level of 44.8% in 2010.

This has been achieved through effective investment including the commissioning of three new kilns in the last decade, replacing older, less efficient processes.
