Lafarge is committed to continually improving our environmental performance. We aim to use energy and natural resources more efficiently, minimize the production of waste, air emissions, water consumption and wastewater discharges, while seeking ways to preserve heritage, landscape and biological diversity.
At Lafarge, we have environmental policies to protect the environment as well as human health and well-being. Our goals are to use energy and natural resources more efficiently, while seeking ways to preserve heritage, landscape and biological diversity. However, it is our employees who carry out that mission everyday through actions large and small that make our long-term vision successful.
Our employees express our company commitment to sustainable development in a myriad of ways – creating new ways of doing things that conserve energy and raw materials, utilize alternative, non-recyclable waste products as fuel or products to make cement, planting trees on company properties and encouraging reforestation in the communities where they work and live, and transforming gravel pits and quarries into wildlife habitats, parks and nature reserves for community use.
