New Irish Cement bag design

June 18, 2012





Irish Cement first introduced CEM II cements to the Irish market in 2007 to reduce the carbon footprint and improve the sustainability of our product range. In keeping with the drive to improve sustainability we have recently invested in modern energy efficient manufacturing facilities and last year further reduced our dependence on imported fossil fuels by introducing  alternative fuels as a heat source in the kiln at Platin Works.

Following several years of commitment and investment, Irish Cement’s CEM II Eco-efficient cements became the first products in Ireland to be independently certified to the BRE Environmental and Sustainability Standard BES 6001. We have now introduced a revised bag design to mark this achievement and to communicate the sustainability benefits of our cement to our customers.
