The response of hard to abate sectors to the EU Green Deal

Join Alex and Cembureau Public Affairs Director, Emmanuel Brutin, as they talk about the response of the hard to abate sectors to the EU Green Deal.

The EU Green Deal maps out an ambitious route to carbon neutrality for all companies and countries in the EU. But how should industry respond? Alex talks with Emmanuel Brutin, the Director of Public Affairs at the pan-european Cembureau to explore their newly revised roadmap for the cement and concrete sectors.

We discuss issues including the development of a European CO2 transportation network, the possibility for cement to decrease CO2 from energy usage by using more non-recyclable waste and biomass – and how the cement and concrete sector can drive the industrial circular economy. Also up for discussion are low carbon/carbon neutral cement products and the route to getting more of these used in place of carbon-intensive product.

This episode is for you if you’re curious about policy, are considering investment in low carbon cement or technologies – or if you’re an industrial wondering how other sectors are seeking to deliver on critical CO2 targets.

Decarb Connect supports the acceleration of industrial decarbonisation around the globe. We share insights and facilitate collaborations across the emerging decarbonisation ecosystem. We look specifically at the most energy-intensive industrials from cement, metals and mining, glass, ceramics, chemicals, O&G and many more and help connect them to technology disruptors, investors and advisors.

Through the Decarbonisation Leaders Network (DLN), our members (a cross-sector network of those leading decarbonisation in energy-intensive industries) share insights and experiences as they accelerate their Net Zero plans.
