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.

Climate Change

Protect climate through entire value chain

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


LafargeHolcim is committed to actions across the entire construction chain to minimize environmental impact and maximize 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.
