EXPLORING SUSTAINABILITY INITIATIVES - CEMENT AUSTRALIA COURTESY VISIT TO BMC
As countries worldwide are recognizing the need to combat climate change, they are setting net zero targets to mitigate its impact. Here, in Brunei Darussalam, the nation is also taking steps towards decarbonization, which includes pledging net zero by 2050.
Last year, our major shareholder, Mitsubishi Gas Chemical Company, Inc. (MGC), signed a memorandum of understanding with Cement Australia Pty Ltd (CA) to study the manufacture and sale of green methanol made from carbon dioxide, using MGC’s newly developed green methanol production technology.
On 19 October 2023, our Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Jesús Enrique Mora Marín, and other key members of our executive management extended a warm welcome to the delegation from both MGC and CA.
During their visit, we provided an in-depth overview of our Company’s operations, with a particular emphasis on our dedication to transitioning towards a net-zero future. It was also an opportunity for us to learn and forge new pathways in sustainable industrial practices, especially in the realm of producing blue/green methanol. The visit wrapped up with a tour of our plant facilities which allowed our guests to experience the dedication that underpins every aspect of our business operations.
MGC was represented by our very own Chairman, Mr. Takayuki Miyamoto, and our former director of the Company, Mr. Shinichi Tokuda. Meanwhile, CA’s delegation was led by Mr. Rob Davies, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Cement Australia, accompanied by Mr. Peter Klose, Strategic Projects Manager, and Mr. Ahmed Moustafa, Group Recarbonisation Manager.
