For Lafarge, sustainable development is making a net positive contribution to society and to nature. In this section, discover the objectives we set ourselves as part of our Sustainability Ambitions 2020, the programs we have implemented to meet these objectives, and the progress we have made.
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.
