The Cement Sustainability Initiative (CSI) is a global effort by 24 leading cement producers, with operations in more than 100 countries.
Collectively these companies account for around 30% of the world’s cement production and range in size from very large multinationals to smaller local producers.
All CSI members have integrated sustainable development into their business strategies and operations, as they seek strong financial performance with an equally strong commitment to social and environmental responsibility.
The CSI is an initiative of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD).
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; and
- Create the content and context for further stakeholder engagement.
