OUTSOURCED BUSINESS AND STORIES
 

China’s carbon neutrality by 2060
 
Late in September this year, China has announced its commitment to end its contribution to global heating and achieve carbon neutrality by 2060. Considering that China is the biggest producer of greenhouse gases in our planet, this news is fantastic! But how is the cement and concrete industry going to be affected by this new Chinese initiative? The discussion between Europe and China to work together on this matter has started, but this partnership has a long way to go!
