Towards low-carbon construction

As a leader in our industry, we embrace the environmental and societal challenges ahead to provide solutions, differentiate our offer and set tomorrow’s standards in the building materials industry.

 

Over the next 25 years, an additional two billion people will join urban areas, and 60 percent of the infrastructure that humanity will need by 2050 remains to be built. As a leader in our industry, we embrace the environmental and societal challenges ahead as we seek to provide solutions, differentiate our offer and set tomorrow’s standards in the building materials industry.

LafargeHolcim is leading the transition towards low-carbon construction by introducing more low-carbon products and solutions to our customers worldwide and by being at the forefront of innovation in building materials. Concrete will continue to play a central role in the transition towards carbon-neutral construction. Widely available, it is characterized by a low-carbon and energy footprint and high recyclability. Besides, no other material is more versatile, resilient and safer than concrete.

LafargeHolcim leads the industry in reducing net carbon emissions, making us one of the most carbon-efficient building materials and solutions companies.
