Sustainability is at the core of our strategy, and we are becoming a net-zero company with 1.5°C targets validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).

Our approach to sustainable construction is oriented around four key pillars: climate, circular economy, nature and people.

Our Sustainability Pillars

Climate Action

Climate action is at the core of Lafarge’s “Strategy 2025 – Accelerating Green Growth” to become a leader in innovative and sustainable development solutions. Through our portfolio of sustainable products and services, Lafarge continues on our mission to cut net CO2 emissions and help customers avoid CO2 emissions released from buildings and infrastructure over the whole life cycle. Our primary focus is on Scope 1 without forgetting to act to reduce Scope 2 and 3 emissions.

Recognizing our industry’s heavy reliance on natural resources, Lafarge is building a nature-positive future to protect the environment. Science-based targets guide us in adapting our operations to natural surroundings, with a focus on protecting biodiversity and water resources. Through rehabilitation and freshwater replenishment plans, we are mitigating our impacts and contributing positively within our sites and communities worldwide.

A global circular economy can enable us to fulfill people's needs while reducing the materials we extract and use–making human activity compatible with the safe limits of the planet. At Lafarge, circularity is at the core of everything we do, as part of our net-zero journey, and we are applying the principles of “reduce, recycle, regenerate” across our business.


At Lafarge, we are building progress for people and the planet by upholding the highest human rights standards and spearheading a wide range of social initiatives. Our People Strategy aims to create shared value and uplift the well-being of communities worldwide.
