The World Cement Association’s (WCA) fifth annual conference and exhibition will highlight cement companies, particularly in the Mena region, can make significant environmental gains with very limited investments.

The event, which will be held this month (September 25 to 28) in person at the Emirates Towers, Dubai, will bring together global leaders and experts from the sector, to showcase progress the industry has made towards decarbonisation and discuss opportunities to improve competitiveness while also reducing carbon emissions.

This year’s theme is Navigating the Climate Challenge: Reducing Carbon and Reducing Costs, and will include a packed agenda, consisting of panel discussions, thematic workshops, CEO dialogues, presentations and networking opportunities. These sessions will cover pressing issues facing the industry, such as responding to climate change, high energy costs and post-Covid recovery, as well as new technologies, AI, and social issues.
