LafargeHolcim is committed to



The time for climate action is now

Building does everything from meeting basic human needs to enabling social progress to giving shape to people’s aspirations. Our strategy aims to grow our business while addressing key challenges such as climate change, urbanization and population growth.

We’ve accelerated our impact in 2020

Sustainability is linked to our core strategy as we make the transition towards low-carbon construction and creating a circular economy. We provide materials and solutions for a circular, low-carbon and inclusive world, re-shaping the way our industry builds.

“LafargeHolcim is leading the way in green building solutions. From our ECOPact green concrete to our EcoLabel, we are committed to accelerating low carbon and circular construction.”

Our net zero pledge

Reducing CO2 emissions is key for us to continue creating long-term value. Our cement is one of the most carbon-efficient in our sector. Our scope 1 and scope 2 emissions per ton of product are 28% lower than in 1990.

Reducing our carbon footprint

Levers to reduce carbon

To reach our 2030 targets we will invest in proven technologies that leverage our expertise, especially reducing our clinker factor and using alternative fuels instead of fossil fuels (or increasing our ‘thermal substitution rate’).
