Performance & initiatives
Indicators & reporting

Our Sustainability Ambitions 2012 program came to term at the end of the year. Almost all the objectives were achieved and contributed to the integration of sustainability into our business processes and strategic orientations. We have built on this program to develop our Sustainability Ambitions 2020, an even more ambitious plan to make a net positive contribution to society. Their implementation will be localized in 2013 and the reporting will start as soon as 2014.

2012 Sustainability report

The Sustainability report allows the Group to provide its stakeholders with an accurate and measurable outlook of its commitments. A transparency-oriented reporting approach which underlies Lafarge's sustainability ambitions since 2001.

The 2012 issue includes:

  • the advances made during the year on the four pillars structuring our 2020 Sustainability Ambitions: Building communities, Building sustainably, Building the Circular Economy and Governance;
  • examples of best practices achieved by the Group;
  • the Group's public positions and commitments;
  • the reporting methodology used by Lafarge to monitor its performance;
  • comments from the stakeholder panel.

Reporting methodology

In 2007 the Group carried out a revision of standards for sustainable development data to take into account the requirements of GRI G3. These were rolled out in 2008. In 2012, the Lafarge Sustainability reporting has received an A+ grading for the 5th consecutive year - evidence of the quality and performance of the Group in this area.
