Hoja de ruta de la tecnología de bajo carbon: Traduciendo la responsabilidad climática en acción

Cemento & Conreto magazine by FICEM, issue #4 2017

A fin de encontrar el camino más eficaz hacia el logro de un objetivo, incluso si este objetivo es muy ambicioso y lejano en el futuro, lo mejor es desarrollar una hoja de ruta, en asociación con las partes interesadas y definir los hitos clave que pavimentarán la Camino de esta hoja de ruta. Estos hitos consisten en la disponibilidad e implementación de las soluciones identificadas, el apoyo regulatorio y financiero, la aceptación por parte de la sociedad civil.

Este es precisamente el proceso que CSI lleva a cabo en lo que respecta a su hoja de ruta tecnológica mundial de bajas emisiones de carbono, para lo cual en 2017 se llevará a cabo una revisión del 2009, a la luz de las últimas tecnologías conocidas y su impacto en la implementación.
