Sustainable Development


The Bamburi Cement Group recognises sustainable practices as critical business imperatives that seek to create value for the business, people and the planet. Sustainable development presents extensive opportunities and challenges for us given the diverse sustainability impacts and benefits created by our operations- from extraction, processing to distribution. We seek to mitigate these impacts through world class sustainability practices and where possible, to enhance value to our stakeholders.

Our sustainability agenda is underpinned by LafargeHolcim’s overarching sustainability intention to “create shared value with society” and the LafargeHolcim 2030 plan, which is a broad set of clear commitments and targets that are supportive of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

We conduct our activities professionally and responsibly, carefully managing the sustainability risks of our business so as to protect our employees, the natural environment and the communities in which we operate while creating value for our customers and stakeholders.

Our passion for people, health, safety and environment remains at the heart of everything we do.

Our sustainability agenda is premised on actions that we anticipate will better the livelihoods, crate jobs and sustain communities within which we operate and work. We are optimistic that collaboratively, through sustainability practices, we can positively contribute towards meeting the challenges faced by communities in which we operate.  

Since our establishment in 1951, we have set a pace in the East Africa Region, with cumulative investments in programs and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities. Our programs purpose to forge strategic engagements with communities to create “shared value”.
