Lafarge has teamed up with the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology in Edmonton (NAIT) and provides classroom lectures on geology, the environment and our aggregate operations. As part of NAIT’s field school, aggregate pit tours convey the importance of aggregates and the aggregate industry as a whole, while offering a balanced message of the real impacts of operations.
Lafarge supports the University of Alberta Sustainability Scholars program, founded with the City of Edmonton. Since 2015, it has grown to include close to a dozen municipal, corporate and institutional partners. These partnerships create unparalleled opportunity for graduate students to share their ideas and innovations, and to also learn best practices from working professionals. The program is designed to develop University of Alberta graduate students' professional aptitudes, especially in sustainability-related career fields.
