The Cement Association of Canada is pleased to present the Canadian Cement Industry 2012 Environmental Performance Report. This is our fourth biennial report and a reflection of our ongoing commitment to transparency with our stakeholders and the public.
The primary use of cement is in concrete, which is the second most used material (after water) on earth. Concrete is literally the foundation upon which modern societies and economies are built and we believe it will be the foundation of the sustainable societies and economies of the future. From net-zero buildings and fuel efficient highways to soil solidification and stabilization and healthier rainwater management, cement and concrete will play an important role in addressing many of society’s most pressing sustainability challenges.
