The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) and the Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA) India signed an MoU under which the two aim to facilitate and accelerate sustainable development of the cement and concrete sectors, including their value chain partners across India.
“The demand for cement & concrete will only increase in the decades to come due to population growth and urbanization. Therefore, reducing CO2 emissions in the cement and concrete industry is critically important,” said Mahendra Singhi, chair, GCCA India.
“Working with stakeholders across sectors and with civil society will be essential to achieving our sustainability goals – our MoU with TERI will bring world-class expertise, resources, and research that will be invaluable to our industry’s drive to carbon neutrality,” he added. “The Indian cement and concrete industry has made significant reductions to its carbon emissions in recent years. We are excited to work with GCCA India and its membership to accelerate the decarbonisation of the sector and improving sustainable development,” said Dr. Vibha Dhawan, Director General, TERI.
