Global Superior Energy Performance Partnership (GSEP) was established by government and corporate leaders in 2010 in Washington DC. The purpose of the initiative is to accelerate energy efficiency improvements throughout industrial facilities and large buildings and to significantly cut global energy use by encouraging industrial facilities and commercial buildings to pursue continuous improvements in energy efficiency. The initiative also aims at promoting public-private partnerships for cooperation on specific technologies or in individual energy-intensive sectors.
Within GSEP, there are six working groups, one of which is the cement working group, which was established in 2011. (GSEP, 2011)
