Zero emissions from cement and mining by 2030. That is the aim of our sustainability programme, MissionZero.
With MissionZero, we accelerate the use of technology and knowledge to enable our customers to produce cement and process minerals with zero environmental impact.
Rising to the challenge
Cement and minerals impact us all
The road to a greener future is paved with cement and minerals. Growing populations need cement for housing and infrastructure, and the move to sustainable energy and electric vehicles requires mining of excessive minerals. Increased purchasing power also leads to more consumption of electricity and electronic goods.
Combined, cement and minerals production accounts for approximately 10% of all CO2 emissions. To meet the requirements of the Paris Agreement and create a sustainable world for future generations, it is imperative that we rise to the challenge and enable more sustainable production of cement and minerals.

Sustainable Development Goals
Contributing to the global agenda
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals have given businesses, governments, and the public society a common language to address the biggest issues facing the global population: poverty, inequality, and climate change.
As cement and mining play a role in everything from housing to distributing electricity and new technology, our industries are relevant to many of the Sustainable Development Goals. We work actively with several of the goals.
