Across the globe, a staggering four billion people do not have access to decent housing. This is a worldwide problem that even affects developed countries. At Lafarge, shaping the future is about more than innovating within the building industry, it is about creating a larger social impact.
To encourage this, we have developed a range of affordable housing solutions for populations and governments, which includes microfinance, earth-cement building solutions, slum renovation and collective social housing. Providing housing at an affordable cost enables a widespread positive impact for populations with low revenue access.
Our range of innovative solutions includes the construction, renovation and extension of affordable houses. Each project is tailored to local challenges and the needs of individuals, NGOs, and public organizations responsible for housing. Throughout South Africa, Lafarge is building and strengthening communities that are sustainable and geared for growth.
