Combined, cement and minerals production accounts for approximately 10% of all CO2 emissions. With growing populations, a larger middle class, and a transition to greener energy, the demand for cement and minerals - and thus the environmental impact - will only increase in the next decade.

 

A more sustainable future requires action from the industries. We will lead this action towards zero emissions in mining and cement, without compromising quality or our customers' commercial competitiveness.

The goals

Our ambitions moving forward


With MissionZero, we will deliver solutions that make it possible to operate zero-emissions cement plants and manage zero-emissions mining processes. Achieving the goals by 2030 requires a paradigm shift in collaboration, innovation and adoption of new technology in the industries.
