IMC has also developed, in collaboration with an international consultancy firm, a study to determine abatement levers for greenhouse gases, and to identify their positive impact on economic development in Egypt. The study has showed the existing sources of Co2 emissions and the suggested methods for reduction in the different industrial activities, particularly in cement industry.
In coordination with some national agencies and international donors, IMC currently undertake parallel activities to improve the efficiency of energy use and to attract appropriate financing for these activities.

• Draft laws to improve the energy efficiency, encourage the use of renewable energy and replace and
limit the use of energy consuming equipments.
• Programs for exchanging experience at the industrial level in the field of energy rationalization, with
some scientific agencies working in the field of energy efficiency.
• Coordination with the Committee on Electricity Rationalization of the Cabinet and the Supreme
