Cement is the largest mass manufactured man made product on earth. The demand for cement is on a continual rise, as more and more developing countries strive for better infrastructure. This demand has, however, entailed an unacceptable increase in the carbon emissions as the cement manufacturing industry is one of the most carbon releasing industries in the world; responsible for a large part of the global carbon emissions. The dangerously high levels of Carbon Dioxide have contributed to a large scale climate change which has global repercussions. The need of the hour is an effective yet inexpensive mechanism to trim down the carbon emissions from the cement factories. In this paper, the main industrial as well as the governmental strategies for alleviating the carbon emissions of the cement industry are reviewed, focusing on the carbon taxation for the latter. This review has observed a comprehensive literature in term of the peer reviewed journals, research papers, industry reports, authentic websites etc on the cement industry and the strategies to reduce the carbon emissions.
