Pakistan: Members of the All Pakistan Cement Manufacturers Association (APCMA) plan to reduce the CO2 emissions from their cement production. The Business Recorder newspaper has reported that companies will take three routes to emissions reduction while continuing to meet increased demand. These are to increase the efficient use of materials, increase energy efficiency and employ new technologies to capture or eliminate emissions.
President Muhammad Ali Tabba said "In a bid to achieve green growth going forward, the cement industry globally will have to adapt to climate change challenges and rework business models to ensure environmental stewardship and robust growth. The cement industry in Pakistan is committed to playing its role."
