MissionZero is our sustainability programme to reduce emissions in cement and mining to zero by 2030.
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.
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.
Increase safety and cut risks and costs with sustainable water and tailings management.
Reduce emission from use of fossil fuels in transportation and minerals processing.
Reduce energy costs and waste, especially from energy intensive mills.
Every mine site has unique considerations, whether it be high fresh water costs, permitting or stability issues.
Reduce carbon emissions from fuel burning and reduce process emissions related to clinker.
Eliminate the need for fossil fuels and deliver solutions for 100% alternative fuel.
Use waste as alternative fuel to make plants more sustainable and profitable.
A cost-effective, efficient in-line calciner that reduces NOx emissions.
