Water & Nature

Water shortage is one of the big issues our planet faces and we need water to make our products. So, we are making it our mission to reduce the amount of fresh water we withdraw from nature and use it carefully. In dry areas, we give more water to communities and ecosystems than we take. And we take care of biodiversity in all the areas where we operate.

Our ambition

We will use less fresh water in all our business lines. We will give more water to communities and nature than we take in water-scarce areas. We want to demonstrate a global positive change to biodiversity in our mining sites. We will provide appropriate hygiene conditions of all workers on our sites.

Our targets

By 2030, we want to achieve a 30% reduction in the amount of fresh water we withdraw from nature to produce each tonne of cement. We want to make a positive difference to water resources in areas where it’s scarce. We want to demonstrate a global positive change for biodiversity by 2030. We want to make sure all our employees and contractors can access safe water, sanitation and hygiene on all our operational sites.
