CSI World Business Council for Sustainable Development
Cement Sustainability Initiative
The UK cement industry is fully supportive of the initiatives being taken by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, through its Cement Sustainability Initiative.
The initiative is a global effort by 21 major cement producers with operations in more than 100 countries that believe there is a strong business case for the pursuit of sustainable development. Collectively these companies account for about 40% of the world’s cement production and range in size from very large multinationals to smaller local producers.
The purpose of the Initiative is to:
- Explore what sustainable development means for the cement industry
- Identify actions and facilitate steps cement companies can take, individually and as a group, to accelerate progress toward sustainable development
- Provide a framework for other cement companies to become involved
- Create the content and context for further stakeholder engagement.
