Cement Sustainability Initiative

The Cement Sustainability Initiative (CSI) is a global effort by 23 major cement producers with operations in more than 100 countries.

CSI companies believe there is a strong business case for the pursuit of sustainable development. 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.
