Roadmap to net-zero carbon concrete by 2050.: Iu44-260/2022E-PDF

"Decarbonizing Canada's cement and concrete sector is a top priority. While it is a complex and multi-faceted challenge, it also presents Canadian industry with significant opportunities—both at home and abroad. This roadmap charts the course to net-zero carbon concrete by 2050, outlining a suite of time-bound measures and actions for industry and government to take to support rapid decarbonization of the sector. The actions proposed within this roadmap fall within three broad themes: (1) driving Canadian market development; (2) driving innovation and transition within industry; and (3) positioning Canadian industry as a global leader. This roadmap was developed in recognition that decarbonization of the cement and concrete industry requires ongoing effort that necessitates strong and sustained action, and continued partnership between industry and government. In recognition of this, the Roadmap includes a robust governance and monitoring structure to ensure continued progress and implementation of the actions proposed herein"--Conclusion, page 24.
