Partnering with the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi), we launched the world’s first 1.5° C science-based framework to decarbonize the cement industry. With this framework, we aim to empower as many companies as possible to join us on the journey to net zero.
As part of this effort, we are engaging our suppliers to identify and manage the environmental impact of their operations and the life cycle of products and services we purchase from them. We focus our efforts on products and services that have the highest impact on climate, water, air emissions, waste, biodiversity and land use. In every sourcing decision, we consider suppliers’ compliance with environmental standards and regulations and environmental performance.
As part of our net-zero strategy, we are committed to reducing indirect CO2 emissions from our supply chain (scope 3) and we take a rigorous and comprehensive approach to measuring and managing them. We are further committed to reduction targets, validated by the SBTi, in 3 areas covering 75% of our scope 3 emissions: downstream transportation, fuels and purchased clinker and cement.
