Abstract: In January 2023, Carolyn Lukaso, CO2 strategist at Heidelberg Materials (HM), formerly HeidelbergCement, considered the challenge of delivering on the emissions target set by the management board: the reduction of CO2 emissions to 400 kg CO2/ton of cementitious material by 2030, a 30 percent reduction from 2021 levels. Even though HM considered itself an industry leader in reducing carbon emissions in the hard-to-decarbonize cement industry, the company was under intense public, regulatory, and internal pressure. Management at HM felt that, with the introduction of new procurement guidelines in Germany, it was now even more important to win government contracts for cement and concrete. Yet, there was broad recognition within the sector that reaching net-zero by 2050 would require pulling a number of “decarbonization levers,” such as the use of slag as a supplementary cementitious material (SCM).
