The Cement Sustainability Initiative (CSI) is a global effort by 23 major cement producers with operations in more than 100 countries who believe there is a strong business case for the pursuit of sustainable development.

Collectively these companies account for about one third of the world’s cement production and range in size from very large multinationals to smaller local producers.

The purpose of the Initiative is to:

- Explore what sustainable development means for the cement industry;
- Identify actions and facilitate steps cement companies can take, individually and as a group, to accelerate progress toward sustainable development;
- Provide a framework for other cement companies to become involved;
- Create the content and context for further stakeholder engagement.

To date the CSI remains one of the largest global sustainability programs ever undertaken by a single industry sector.

The Agenda for Action has been developed following a three-year program of scoping, research and stakeholder consultation looking at what sustainable development means for the future of the cement industry.

Climate protection
Implement an industry protocol, developed as part of the research program, for monitoring and reporting CO2 emissions from the cement manufacturing process. Each company will set individual CO2 emissions targets.

Fuels and raw materials
Develop guidelines for responsible use of all fuels and raw materials in cement kilns.

Employee health and safety
A Health and Safety Task Force will ensure delivery of effective systems of measuring, monitoring and reporting on health and safety performance. Companies will share their experiences to identify causes of accidents and to reduce injuries.

Emissions reduction
Develop an industry protocol for measuring, monitoring and reporting emissions, and individual companies will publicly report emissions targets.

Local impacts
Create guidelines for Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) by cement companies.
