US: California Governor Gavin Newsom has signed a bill requiring the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to develop a plan by mid-2023 for the state’s cement producers to achieve net zero emissions of greenhouse gases by the end of 2045 at the latest. A 40% reduction compared to 2019 levels would also be required by the end of 2035 with interim targets set beforehand. CARB will also be obliged to ‘define a metric for greenhouse gas intensity,’ monitor emissions data, set a baseline to measure emissions reduction progress, evaluate measures to support market demand and financial incentives to encourage the production and use of low-carbon cement amongst other actions.
