Sustainable development, social progress, environmental protection: these concerns have been at the heart of Lafarge's strategy since its inception, over 170 years ago
Lafarge showed its leadership in this area by being the first in its sector and one of the first industrials to take on firm CO2 reduction commitments and has continued its progress in its Ambitions 2012 program (2007-2012).
We are increasingly convinced that considering the vast challenges that the world faces on education, urbanization and poverty, we need to go further.
As the world leader in our sector, we can contribute to improving the quality of life of an always-expanding urban population through homes, housing systems and infrastructure.
This is why Lafarge Sustainability Ambitions 2020 are the first steps towards a vision of the future where we strive to protect the environment and, more importantly, to make a net positive contribution to society as a whole.
Our new Ambitions are organized around three pillars that will establish us as a leading sustainability company:
- Society / Building Communities,
- Economy / Building Sustainably,
- Environment / Building the Circular Economy.
Lafarge's Ambitions 2020 will drive changes to every part of the Group's operations over the next eight years, in order to change the way we operate and let us progress towards our vision.
