The World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) today announced a new, ground-breaking carbon emissions reduction initiative in India, the Low Carbon Technology Roadmap for Indian Cement Industry. The initiative is supported by the International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group, and is being carried out in collaboration with the International Energy Agency (IEA).

The WBCSD’s Cement Sustainability Initiative (CSI) and the IEA developed the Global Cement Technology roadmap in 2009. This was the first report of its kind to provide an ambitious vision for carbon emissions reductions for one industry sector as a whole, up to 2050. The Indian roadmap will be the first roadmap to focus on one specific industrial sector in one country.
