Carbon Leakage Mitigation for UK Cement and Concrete

Summary: Carbon Leakage Mitigation Measures Required

The UK Cement sector requires a carbon leakage mitigation measure that levels the carbon cost between domestic production and imports. As long as there is carbon in cement products, and the UK carbon price is higher than that paid by competitors, the UK cement sector is at risk of carbon leakage. MPA is therefore strongly in favour of a CBAM on cement.
