The national climate change strategy identifies process substitution as one action to control greenhouse gas emissions and refers to the potential of environmentally friendly cement substitutes as part of a range of measures designed to enable Ireland to reach its Kyoto target. My Department is examining options for increasing the use of environmentally friendly cement substitutes in the construction sector. Following consideration of the issues arising specific proposals will be developed which will then be subject to consultation with the construction industry and other interested parties.
