CEMEX has announced its plans to purchase clean energy from energy supplier Acciona to power its cement operations in Spain.
The purchase agreement ensures supply of green energy to cover 30% of the cement producer’s requirements in the southern European nation.
“This agreement shows our commitment to our clean energy transition, adding to the success of similar agreements in other geographies,” said Sergio Menéndez, president of CEMEX Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia.
CEMEX plans to power at least 55% of its operations using clean energy sources by 2030 as it targets carbon neutrality in its cement and concrete plants.
CEMEX also sees it as a key strategy in the cement industry’s decarbonisation drive.
The company announced earlier this year that its operations in Guatemala will operate entirely with clean energy purchase from Italy’s Enel Green Power.
