I’m delighted to announce that WCA’s members unanimously approved our proposed climate policy, reflecting growing recognition of the scale and urgency of the climate crisis we face, and the importance of our industry’s role in accelerating worldwide decarbonisation,” said Ian Riley, WCA CEO. “The Climate Policy will be implemented in 2022, and I look forward to sharing more details on this in the coming months”.
The World Cement Association has announced the unanimous approval of its proposed Climate Policy and the re-election of Mr Cui Xingtai (Chairman of CUCC) to the Board of Directors at its fifth General Assembly, which took place virtually on December 20, 2021.
The Climate Policy focuses on accelerating the decarbonisation of the cement and concrete industry by encouraging and supporting members to set ambitious targets on reducing CO2 emissions, and fostering collaboration both along the supply chain and across industries.
On his re-election, Mr Cui Xingtai said “Despite the complicated global economic and social situation, WCA recorded outstanding achievements in 2021, thanks to the joint efforts of members, our CEO Ian Riley and the wider WCA organisational team. I’m honoured to be re-elected to the Board of Directors, and look forward to continuing the good work we are doing to decarbonise the cement industry and to represent the interests of our members worldwide”.
