The Cement Industry and Global Climate Change: Current

2003-1-1  The cement industry is responsible for approximately 5% of global anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions. Atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases cannot be stabilized without addressing this important emissions source. The industry emits nearly 900 kg of CO 2 for every 1000 kg of cement produced.

QA: Why cement emissions matter for climate change

2018-9-13  The average CO2 intensity of cement production – the emissions per tonne of output – has fallen by 18% globally over the past few decades, according to Chatham House. However, the sector’s emissions as a whole have risen significantly, with demand tripling since 1990. Progress so far has come in three main areas.

Cement – Analysis - IEA

Initial estimates suggest that 4.3 Gt of cement were produced globally in 2020. This is a modest increase from 4.2 Gt the previous year, driven in large part by infrastructure-related stimulus projects in China. China is the largest cement producer, accounting for about 55% of global production, followed by India at 8%.
