Following the purchase both its specific gross CO2 emissions per tonne of cementitious material and its alternative fuels mix fell. However, specific emissions of NOx and SOx fell, although specific dust emissions rose in the reporting period. The cement producer also improved accident frequency despite increasing its workforce to 15,781 in 2016 from 9560 in 2015.
