A long-standing commitment to sustainable development
For Lafarge, sustainable development is a long-standing commitment, which dates back to the Group's first Principles of Action in 1977. We are convinced that our growth and competitiveness are inextricably linked to the quality of living conditions in the places where we operate and that there can be no sustainable economic development without the preservation of nature.
Sustainability Ambitions 2020: our roadmap to make a net positive contribution to society and nature
Our Sustainability Ambitions 2020 is a comprehensive and far-reaching program, covering all dimensions of sustainable development - social, economic and environmental - and considering them as a whole.
Focusing on key issues for our Group, as well as our stakeholders' expectations, we have identified ambitious, quantified targets for priority action in our Materiality Matrix.
With our Sustainability Ambitions we aim to make a net positive contribution to society and to nature, minimizing our environmental footprint while maximizing the value created for all our stakeholders.
