2nd Environmental Cement Africa Conference
11th -12th May 2011
"Sustainability is always talked about from an ethical perspective, which is right, but we also need to look at sustainability based on a business rationale.”
The 2nd Environmental Cement Africa is a unique event: It aims to be a platform for informed advice, presentation of good practice, and stakeholder debate regarding the industry’s need to comply with increased international environmental and emission standards while sustaining its economic profitability.
Africa’s cement industry is playing a central role in this effort. Demand and production of cement and related investment in the region are steadily growing and while less affluent local cement companies need to face up to the challenge of incorporating environmentally sustainable production modes, African-based international companies are increased under pressure to meet their corporate responsibilities and lead the way ahead in a region where controls and regulations are less stringent.
By creating conducive ground for effective interaction, the conference is aimed to promote long-term partnership among participants which eventually will bring about cost-effective and profitable business solutions in the region.
This two-day conference provides you with access to prime networking and business development opportunities with all the major cement companies in Africa, government representatives, financial institutions, equipment providers, investors, engineering, academia and environmental institutions.
The conference will deliver a broad agenda of penetrating presentations, panel discussions, case studies and status reports on:
• Guidelines and Good Practices towards a Sustainable Cement Industry
• Alternative Fuels and Emission Reduction Measures and Innovations
• The Future of Carbon Trading in Africa
• Practical Advice towards Emission Reduction Equipment
• Overview of new Developments in the African cement industry
• Networking and Investment Opportunities, Exhibition, Gala Dinner
