Malaysia: a city’s commitment to sustainable development
Putrajayadu, the administrative capital of the Malaysian federal government, is at the forefront of sustainable development.
As part of a major urban development project, the city is using Lafarge Portland and Mascrete cements for administrative buildings, mosques and hospitals. Over 2 million m³ of concrete have been supplied.
In 2050, 70% of the world population will live in cities, twice as many as there were in 1970. Whether large, medium or small, whether in mature or emerging countries, cities are central to the challenges facing the planet. To improve cities, Lafarge contributes to the construction of cities around the world, through its innovative solutions providing them with more housing and making them more compact, more durable, more beautiful, and better connected.
