Since then, the company has achieved record-breaking CO2 reductions, and its performance to date has given the company the confidence that it can achieve a more accelerated pathway for 2030.
“Climate change is the biggest challenge of our times, and the building materials industry must be at the forefront of decarbonizing the built environment,” said Fernando A. González, CEO of CEMEX. “We are committed to being leaders on the path to net-zero through relentless innovation and aggressive targets that are backed up by meaningful and measurable progress. The SBTi’s validation is clear evidence of this. Through Future in Action, we are reducing carbon emissions in every part of our value chain and providing our customers with lower carbon products so they can also be part of the solution.”
“Climate science tells us that we need rapid and deep emissions cuts if we are to achieve global net-zero,” said Luiz Amaral, Chief Executive Officer of the Science Based Targets initiative. “Today, CEMEX joins the growing list of companies cutting emissions across its entire value chain in line with science and it is playing its part in limiting warming to 1.5°C.”
