MissionZero-related SDGs


We have built our MissionZero programme on specific SDGs in which we have significant value chain impacts:


  • SDG 6: clean water and sanitation
  • SDG 7: affordable and clean energy
  • SDG 12: responsible consumption and production 
  • SDG 13: climate action

Faster development and adoption of more sustainable solutions in mining and cement is urgently needed as both sectors play a crucial role in the transition towards a low-carbon society. Many solutions are already available—but work is needed to ensure the right pathway for decarbonisation. Our MissionZero programme aims to deliver these solutions in partnership with our customers and other key stakeholders.
