A long-standing commitment to sustainable development
For Lafarge, sustainable development is a long-standing commitment, which dates back to the Group's first Principles of Action in 1977. We are convinced that our growth and competitiveness are inextricably linked to the quality of living conditions in the places where we operate and that there can be no sustainable economic development without the preservation of nature.
While we sincerely strive for sustainable actions as a matter of what is right, Lafarge understands that in order to be successful - we must be financially sustainable. Therefore, it makes business sense to do what is right. We are always seeking ways to increase our environmental performance at our operations but beyond that we work to develop innovative solutions that can help design and engineering professionals achieve sustainable construction.
Lafarge Canada is changing to reflect the world around us. As part of our social license to operate, we focus on three sustainability areas: climate, circular economy and our local communities.
