Renewable energy sources a tool in the fight against climate change

02 of August '20

One hundred percent of the electricity purchased in 2020-2021 for 32 CEMEX plants in Poland from PGE Polska Grupa Energetyczna will come from renewable energy sources (RES). With this, CEMEX reaffirms its commitment to responsible management of natural resources and conducting business in accordance with sustainable development principles.

CEMEX Poland has received a certificate certifying that all electricity purchased for its manufacturing operations will come from renewable sources, including wind energy. This is the result of arrangements and business cooperation with PGE Obrót, which is a seller of electricity to end users, operating within the PGE Group, with which CEMEX Poland has been cooperating for more than 10 years.

CEMEX Poland is a consumer of energy from renewable sources for the operation of 32 plants, i.e. most of the production facilities owned by the company. These include two cement plants in Rudniki and Chełm, a clinker milling plant in Gdynia, 23 concrete plants throughout Poland and five aggregate mines. Electricity consumption at these plants amounts to 280 GWh annually. Purchasing energy exclusively from RES is another element in implementing CEMEX Poland's environmental responsibility strategy.

Basing the cooperation with PGE Obrót on renewable energy sources (RES) is part of CEMEX's strategy of sustainable development and climate protection, according to which we take care of reducing emissions and rational management of natural resources in our activities. Basing industrial production, such as the production of cement or ready-mix concrete, on RES is a significant step on the way to reducing the carbon footprint, which leads to reducing the impact of industry on climate change," says Jacek Nowosad, Energy Management Manager at CEMEX Poland.

Guarantees of origin of electricity are issued by the President of the Energy Regulatory Office. They are submitted to the Guarantees of Origin Register, which is maintained on the Polish Power Exchange. PGE Obrót, as a member of the Guarantees of Origin Register, provides its end users with guarantees of origin, which confirm that a certain amount of electricity, has been generated using renewable energy sources.

More and more companies are focusing on social and environmental responsibility in their activities, looking for such solutions that will allow them to achieve their business goals while minimizing their impact on the environment. We are therefore pleased to cooperate with CEMEX, which, by choosing PGE Obrót's "Naturally that Energy" offer, is focusing on sustainable development and solutions to positively impact the climate," says Maciej Michalski, Director of PGE Obrót's Corporate Clients Department.

Due to the scale and scope of its operations, CEMEX Poland strategically manages its impact on the environment. Maximizing power generation sources and the use of RES is one of CEMEX's key initiatives to combat climate change. The use of RES allows the company to reinforce its existing commitment to reduce carbon emissions from its operations, realized, among other things, through the use of alternative fuels as a substitute for natural energy sources such as hard coal.

CEMEX Poland is one of the country's leading producers of cement, ready-mixed concrete and aggregates. Using the experience, knowledge and capital of an international corporation, CEMEX Poland applies internationally recognized standards of production and management providing the Polish market with construction materials of the highest quality.
