Local Partnerships

The Group encourages local intiatives. Lafarge South Africa has pledged ongoing support for the world's first dedicated baby rhino orphanage situated in Limpopo. The centre cares for injured or parentless baby rhinos.

Recycling Initiative




Lafarge Cement's sustainable development ambition is to contribute to a better world as a legacy for our children. Focusing on the environment and concerns about climate change in particular, we organised a trial ‘Green Team' recycling initiative among eight schools in the surrounding communities of our Lichtenburg Cement Works.
