The cement sector contributing to low-carbon development through collaboration

Organizer: WBCSD & CSI

Date: Tue / Dec. 8 - 17:00

Time: 17:00

Area: Blue Zone


Tuesday, 8 December 2015 from 17:00 to 18:30 at the WBCSD-IETA ‘Open for Business’ hub (hall 3 – pavilion 4) inside the blue zone at COP21 in Paris.

The event will be followed by a cocktail reception (18:30 to 20:30).
Aware of the vital role that cement and concrete plays and will continue to play in the future of our modern society (with increasing urbanised population and mobility needs development), and aware of the significant challenge that mitigating the CO2 emissions from cement production represents, the cement sector has made long-term committed efforts towards low-carbon development on a global scale. Collaboration both within and beyond the sector is necessary to deliver against aspirational goal and bring upon progressive advancement in low-carbon development for the sector and along its value chain.


Joined by CEO of 3 important members of the CSI, I will be moderating the discussion and Mr. Peter Bakker, President & CEO of WBCSD will be sharing a concluding remark.
