Canadian Cement Industry Committed to Canada’s Low-Carbon Transition

Carbon pricing poses significant challenges for Energy Intensive Trade Exposed sectors like cement, especially given our significant exports to US markets that don’t face similar costs. We are committed to low-carbon leadership and are making progress with low carbon fuels and significant investments in other made-in-Canada innovations. Minister McKenna and her team have worked very hard with industry and other stakeholders to find the right balance of incentives to drive GHG reductions while protecting competitiveness. We believe the federal plan, including related fiscal measures announced in the Fall Economic Statement, will help reduce emissions, accelerate low carbon technology investments into Canada, while protecting local jobs.
