Unformatted text preview: line with the TITAN Group climate
mitigation strategy, we joined efforts with
other companies, stakeholders and citizens
from all over the world in the framework of the
UN Global Compact Seal the Deal Campaign, an
effort sought to help bring about a strong, ef
fective international climate agreement.
Carbon Dioxide emissions from cement pro
duction currently represent about 5% of anthro
pogenic global CO2 emissions. As a result, the
cement industry is continuously exploring ways
to address Climate Change by undertaking ini tiatives that reduce the carbon footprint of ce
ment’s production and use. Carbon footprint Given the available technology, there are four
distinct “reduction levers” available to the ce
ment industry to reduce carbon emissions.
These carbon reduction levers have also been
used to model the future evolution of the Ce
ment Sector’s carbon emissions in both CSI’s
Sectoral Approach Project and IEA’s and WBCSD
Cement Technology Roadmap. Cement plants generate carbon dioxide emis
sions, thus contributing to the greenhouse ef
fect and climate change. There are both direct
and indirect emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2). In brief these levers are:
Energy efficiency i.e. deployment of state
