To that CEMEX has been working to cut cement production related carbon emissions through investing in energy efficiency, using alternative fuels, increasing its use of renewable energy and increasing clinker substitution through alternative cementitious materials. Through these efforts the company has achieved a reduction of more than 22 pct in net specific CO2 emissions compared to a 1990 baseline.
In 2019 CEMEX announced a goal to reduce 30 pct of its CO2 net emissions by 2030, but has raised its 30 pct taget to 35 pct our CO2net emissions by 2030, aligned with the Science-Based Targets Methodology.
