Titan Cement Group (and Chairman of the ERT Committee on Energy Transition & Climate Change)

The transformative agenda of the European Green Deal is as demanding as it is compelling. The scale of the transition involved requires strong and sizeable collaboration between governments, society, industry and the wider business community.  For our part, we are engaged and ready to support the 55% reduction target by 2030 coupled with an enabling policy framework to ensure competitiveness and industrial transformation.

Commitment

We have adopted a climate change mitigation strategy, which is reflected in our environmental policy and drives our Group CO₂ Initiative, targeting to achieve 35% reduction, by 2030 below 1990 level.

We continuously build on our CO₂ Initiative, which includes actions per plant, taking both conventional and innovative actions to mitigate CO₂ emissions. We are committed to contribute to the Paris Agreement (COP21) objective to keep the global temperature increase below 2oC and we are supportive of the European Commission’s Green Deal vision of carbon neutrality by 2050.
