Think-tank The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA) India to increase sustainability in the Indian cement and concrete sectors.
 
Under the MoU, the two entities aimed to facilitate and accelerate sustainable development of the cement and concrete sectors, including their value chain partners across India.
 
These days, GCCA India focuses on advancing sustainable construction while demonstrating industrial sustainable leadership in Indian cement and concrete manufacturing.
 
The organisation leads the industry’s drive to carbon neutrality by 2050 in line with global climate targets, as well as the Low Carbon Technology Roadmap.
 
As per the agreement, TERI will provide its domain expertise and knowledge to support GCCA India’s work to achieve sustainability in the Indian cement and concrete sector.
 
The mutual collaboration includes TERI’s involvement in GCCA India work programs while GCCA India and its members will support TERI’s projects on technology innovation, energy efficiency enhancement, and resource efficiency implementation.
 
Commenting on the MoU signed, Mahendra Singhi, Chair, GCCA India, said “the demand for cement & concrete will only increase in the decades to come due to population growth and urbanisation. Therefore, reducing CO2 emissions in the cement and concrete industry is critically important.”
 
“Working with stakeholders across sectors and with civil society will be essential to achieving our sustainability goals – our MoU with TERI will bring world-class expertise, resources, and research that will be invaluable to our industry’s drive to carbon neutrality,” he added.
 
“The Indian cement and concrete industry has made significant reductions to its carbon emissions in recent years. We are excited to work with GCCA India and its membership to accelerate the decarbonisation of the sector and improving sustainable development,” said Dr. Vibha Dhawan, Director General, TERI.
