The World Cement Association has announced its knowledge partnership with Decarb Connect, an organisation which supports the scale and acceleration of industrial carbonisation.
As Knowledge Partners, Decarb Connect and WCA recognise that in their different workflows, they share a similar mission in the area of decarbonisation. Decarb Connect’s goal is to help drive the most energy-intensive sectors, those with complex challenges to solve, such as the cement industry, towards decarbonisation. It provides access to hard-to-reach information in terms of introductions and solutions, and facilitates network relationships across the industry. Accordingly, WCA's members benefit from special ticket pricing and also are secure in the knowledge that they have an advocate representing their views within the wider Decarb Connect programme.
“Under these challenging and uncertain circumstances, it’s more important than ever to collaborate with a wide range of organisations and individuals for mutual benefit by sharing expertise, building relationships in other sectors and supporting industry around the world,” said Ian Riley, CEO at WCA. “We’re therefore especially pleased with this partnership as it will give us the opportunity to connect with decarbonisation leaders in other fields that need to approach the path to net zero and explore a range of ongoing initiatives.”
At this year’s Decarb Connect Digital Festival, Ian Riley will speak, sharing evidence-based strategies and road maps to encourage stakeholders to follow the net zero challenge.
“Our mission is to help hard to abate sectors accelerate industrial decarbonisation decisions and deployments. Through the digital festival and network our goal is to shine a light on the international projects and strategies that are already achieving results in energy intensive sectors like cement and aggregates,” said Alex Cameron, founder and CEO of Decarb Connect. “Right from the start, The WCA has been supportive of our plans and it’s clear that their commitment to helping their worldwide membership deliver on carbon commitments makes them an ideal partner. We really look forward to partnering with them and ensuring that members reap the benefits.”
Knowledge Partners support not only the goals of the Decarb Connect Digital Festival, but have also contributed to the structure and content of the event. This is a global initiative aiming to accelerate the strategies and solution that will fast track the decarbonisation of the toughest-to-abate sectors.
