Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM): Cement sector

The Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) is an instrument implemented by the European Union to address carbon leakage. It aims to ensure that imported goods are subject to a carbon price equivalent to the carbon price of domestic production in the EU. CBAM affects the cement sector by putting a price on emissions associated with cement produced in countries outside the EU, with the goal of encouraging sustainable practices and reducing carbon footprint.
