CIMPOR invests trustingly in the countries within which it operates. As an important industrial player in many of these markets, it actively participates in developing local communities.

Increasing global pressure on Natural Resources and a need to maintain the social structure require all members of communities to reflect and act to protect the environment and socio-economic structures of which they are part, contributing to their greater resilience.

n a sector that makes substantial use of natural resources and in a society that is becoming increasingly aware of the way in which wealth is generated, companies face a pressing need to integrate socio-economic and environmental aspects into their business practices, respecting the need to preserve our legacy for future generations and adhere to best practices on a global scale.

Environmental and social issues have been worked into CIMPOR's business strategies thanks to the commitment made to minimising its impact and managing the environmental footprint of its operations in order to contribute to preserving the fragile balance of our planet and establishing lasting relationships with the surrounding communities.

As such, CIMPOR aims at reducing its CO2 emissions by 37% by 2030, achieving Carbon Neutrality by 2050. This measure, which is integrated into the company's long-term environmental strategy, is part of our roadmap towards to a carbon-neutral economy - an aim that is expected to be reached by the middle of this century.  

To meet this new environmental target, CIMPOR commits to investing around 130 M€ into modernising industrial assets and R&D projects by 2030. 



A detailed presentation of the pathway that the Portuguese Cement Industry proposes to adopt, and therefore CIMPOR which will follow an identical pattern, to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. The years 1990 and 2017 are considered as the calculation base, and the potential for carbon emissions reduction in the national cement sector is estimated for 2030 and 2050. Actions to be developed for each element of the clinker, cement, concrete, construction and [re]carbonation value chain are identified, as well as the estimated necessary investments."
