Brussels Joint statement on European green deal

Windturbine Foundation

Cembureau in Brussels and other European associations signed the Antwerp Declaration with WindEurope to decarbonise Europe’s industry through electrification by wind power. Cement is a critical component in the construction of wind turbine foundations (photo: reinforcement for a wind turbine foundation, provided by BWE, Heiko Jessen) and their recycling, while the growth of renewable energy is indispensable to achieve the cement sector’s net zero ambition. The European cement industry association looks forward to a good cooperation with the wind energy sector to support a strong EU industrial policy and help building the business case for decarbonisation investments.
