CEMEX drives climate action by renewing three-year partnership with ENGIE for 100% UK renewable electricity supply
Global building materials solutions supplier CEMEX has renewed its partnership with low-carbon energy supplier ENGIE for a further three years. The partnership will continue the supply of 100% UK renewable electricity to all CEMEX’s UK owned sites, which first started in 2019.
This comes to nearly 200 sites and includes its cement plant at Rugby and grinding plant at Tilbury, as well as key operational locations such as the quarry in Dove Holes, Buxton and the Northfleet concrete plant and wharf. It further demonstrates CEMEX’s Future In Action commitment to net zero CO2 across its operations.
CEMEX announced its Climate Action strategy in February 2020, and in its European operations reduced its CO2 emissions by close to 35% as of December 31st, 2020, ten years ahead of the target date. CEMEX also declared a 55% CO2 reduction target for its European Operations, aligning with the European Commission goal for all member states.
Martin Hills, Head of Carbon, Legacy Landfill and Special Projects for CEMEX Europe, commented: “We are aware that the production of our materials, particularly cement, is an energy-intensive process and we are committed to improving the energy efficiency of our operations and cutting carbon emissions.
“CEMEX has a dedicated Climate Action Plan for its global operations which outlines the company’s vision to advance towards a carbon-neutral economy and to address society’s increasing demands more efficiently. The use of renewable electricity at our sites plays an important part in this and we are pleased to have renewed our partnership with ENGIE for a further three years.”
Ben Taylor, Account Manager at ENGIE commented: “ENGIE is delighted to be extending our long running partnership with CEMEX to provide 100% UK renewable electricity supply. We are committed to helping our customers reduce carbon emissions and deliver optimum energy performance across their sites and operations and this contract is a positive step towards helping CEMEX transition to a lower carbon future.”
