Creating Markets for Climate-Safe Cement and Steel
Cement and steel generate about 6 gigatons of CO2 per year. Approximately 50% of cement and 20% of steel is purchased with tax dollars for public buildings and other public projects. This project will seek to showcase the value of “buying clean”, which will expand the market for green steel and cement and spur related business innovation. In the U.S. alone, this initiative could affect $100 billion in construction and 100 million tons of CO2 every year.
