South Africa: Eco-City, housing for all

7 December 2004

LafargeHolcim in South Africa supports the Eco-City project run by Eco-City, a non-governmental organization, and the W.W.F. (World Wide Fund for Nature).


The project constructs low-cost housing which respects environmental considerations and is accessible to low-income families. LafargeHolcim South Africa donated 300 tons of cement and 70 m³ of concrete for the construction of the first 30 houses, which are designed to keep energy consumption to a minimum.
