Virtual roadmap workshop for decarbonization of cement sector in India

LeadIT has committed to aiding in road-mapping processes in India’s cement sector by facilitating dialogues and offering technical and methodological guidance for developing roadmaps, such as through the Roadmap Planner.

The LeadIT Secretariat, TERI, and the Strategic Partnership for the Implementation of Paris Agreement (SPIPA) project are jointly hosting a road mapping process for target coherence with those targets and visions at a virtual workshop scheduled during 20-22 December 2021.

The cement sector is literally the building block of modern infrastructure and will remain so for the foreseeable future. Although material substitution will play a significant role in cutting emissions from this sector, massive amounts of cement will be needed to produce the buildings, infrastructure, and equipment required. However, the cement sector has a large carbon footprint. There are technological solutions within reach that would allow for close to zero-emissions production of cement. Industry transition roadmaps can serve as analytical tools for understanding, framing, and shaping complex transition processes. For other sectoral and national roadmaps, see the Industry Transition Tracker.

Participation in the workshop is by invitation only. Pre-registration is necessary. For additional details, write to gokce.mete@sei.org.
