Sustainability strategy

 

Our sustainability strategy

The 21st Century will be defined by the challenge of climate change, in which the construction sector can play a key role. For LargeHolcim, this global challenge requires a collaborative response that goes beyond our ambitious efforts in own operations. The Group is commited to reducing CO2 emissions across the entire construction value chain. LafargeHolcim is commited to actions across the entire construction chain to minimise environmental impact and maximise value creation.

 

As the most advanced group in its sector, LafargeHolcim's approach is to generate, monitor and report greenhouse gas savings right through to the use of its solutions through their life cycle.
