Government of Canada and the CAC launch road map to achieve net-zero carbon concrete by 2050
Both the Government of Canada and the Cement Association of Canada (CAC) have launched a road map that outlines how the Canadian concrete industry can achieve net-zero carbon concrete by 2050. Concrete is the most used building material on the planet, and the cement needed to make that concrete accounts for seven percent of global CO2 emissions and about 1.5 percent of Canada's emissions. With support and collaboration from the Government of Canada and partners across the construction value chain, Canada's cement and concrete industry has the ability to eliminate more than 15 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions cumulatively by 2030.
