- 26% reduction in net specific CO2 emissions per ton of cement from 1990
Why we care
Cement is one of the most consumed resources in the world. Its manufacturing process requires the production of clinker, which results in CO2 emissions through the limestone decarbonisation process and energy consumption.
As a result of our past efforts, LafargeHolcim is the most carbon efficient cement company among international groups. But we need to do more. Buildings are responsible for 30-40% of global carbon emissions. As the new leader of the building materials industry, we strongly believe that we have a critical role to play to help decrease that footprint, together with the whole construction chain.
Our targets for 2030
► Produce 40% less net CO2 per ton of cement than we did in 1990
► Help our customers avoid 10 million tons of CO2 released every year from their buildings and infrastructure by using our innovative solutions.
