Glendora, CA, Oct. 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CalPortland Company today joined an ambitious journey to achieving carbon neutrality across the cement and concrete value chain by signing onto the Portland Cement Association’s (PCA) Roadmap to Carbon Neutrality. The Roadmap, which was developed in collaboration with experts and members of the PCA, demonstrates how the U.S. concrete and cement industry can work together to address climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It is crucial that the cement industry works together to ensure sustainable building solutions for the future, given the important role it plays in society and the anticipated growth of infrastructure.

“CalPortland supports this realistic approach to addressing climate change,” said Allen Hamblen, President/CEO CalPortland Company. “We are continually exploring new technologies and opportunities to contribute to a low carbon future and circular economy, and we are pleased to see the industry coming together which will result in a significant impact on the environment.”

The Roadmap focuses on a comprehensive range of reduction strategies for stakeholders to adopt across all phases of the material’s life cycle, such as reducing CO2 from the manufacturing process, decreasing combustion emissions by changing fuel sources and shifting toward increased use of renewable electricity.

Many of the solutions included in the PCA Roadmap are products, technologies and approaches that exist today – and by bringing together a variety of collaborators, PCA intends to ensure the adoption of these solutions on a broad scale. This will provide immediate benefits and help us to achieve carbon neutrality in the long-term.

CalPortland currently provides many low carbon solutions and has a history of sustainable actions. For seventeen years, the company has been named ENERGY STAR Partner-of-the Year. It also produces ADVANCEMENT low carbon cement. Southern California’s diesel-powered ready mix truck fleet was replaced by CNG/RNG trucks. The company also commissioned a fleet CNG/RNG powered bulk cement transporters last year to show its commitment to zero emissions.

Industry experts, researchers, policymakers and companies along the value chain are imperative to realize the multitude of solutions that must be developed across policies and regulations, technology, innovation and demand generation – creating both near-and long-term CO2 reduction opportunities and constantly striving toward carbon neutrality.

Additionally, cement and concrete companies worldwide have committed to achieve carbon neutrality across the value chain by 2050. Climate change is a global problem. Each country has its own unique opportunities and challenges. The PCA Roadmap addresses these issues. PCA is aligned with the Global Cement and Concrete Association’s Roadmap.
