The Cement Manufacturers’ Association (CMA) India, appears to have a limited engagement with climate change policy, although it does appear to have has some engagement issues concerning the energy mix. Despite CMA’s President in 2012, Mr Muthiah, reportedly calling on the industry to respond quickly and effectively to global warming concerns, CMA has failed to properly communicate any of its climate change policy positions on its website. Other evidence from presentations given by the organisation’ technological advisor Dr S.L Handoo suggests some support for an action plan to reduce CO2 emissions, including some apparent support for policy to incentivize energy efficiency, although it is unclear if this amounts to support for action in line with IPCC guidelines. CMA has engaged more openly with issues related to the energy mix and has organized conferences designed to encourage engagement over the possibility of transitioning the fuels used in cement manufacturing away from coal and towards alternative fuels recovered from waste disposal. However, CMA appears to have also worked against a transition away from fossil fuels by repeatedly advocated to policy makers to increase coal allowances for the industry. CMA’s website states that 'coal is vital to the Cement Industry’ and in 2014 CMA’s Secretary General NA Viswanathan spoke to the press, stressing the importance of a ‘quality coal’ supply to the cement industry.
