Abstract

The process of manufacturing cement results in the generation of emissions and wastes. With increasing international awareness of environmental issues and concern for the impacts of industrial operations on the environment, the international cement industry has taken a leading role to evaluate its responsibilities and a group of major producers has agreed on future actions to ensure sustainability of the industry. The cement manufacturers in South Africa participated in the above evaluation process and have assessed the emissions being made in South Africa. While the record demonstrates a downward trend, the South African manufacturers have committed to an Action Plan in the interests of meeting future stakeholder needs in a sustainable manner.
