Lafarge is a leader in innovative and sustainable construction materials. It provides comprehensive solutions for eco-construction that help build safer, faster, and more efficiently. Lafarge's solutions include low-carbon cements and concretes with up to 50% lower carbon footprint than standard materials. The company uses recycled ingredients and raw materials in their production. Its portfolio also includes a range of solutions for sustainable construction, from recycled insulation materials to flooring systems that reduce energy consumption in buildings, and consequently their carbon footprint. This approach supports the conservation of natural resources and circular economy.
Lafarge in Poland belongs to the Holcim Group, which is the first company in the cement sector in the world to sign the Net-Zero Pledge. According to the pledge, the Group will reduce its CO2 emissions by at least 20% by 2030 compared to 2018. In Poland, Lafarge's ambition is to reduce emission levels by 55% compared to 1990. Lafarge intends to achieve this goal by decarbonising the value chain, i.e. all processes related to the company's operations. In this way, Lafarge minimises its impact on the environment and protects the communities, and by introducing low-carbon solutions, it supports the development of a sustainable construction industry in Poland.

Climate challenges require innovative solutions. Existing technologies are no longer sufficient, while new technologies must be consistent with the principles of social wellbeing and sustainable growth, taking into account the key values of the green construction industry, such as: progress, local communities, the planet, and wellbeing. The Kujawy Go4ECOPlanet project, which involves capturing carbon dioxide generated during cement production, is part of the company's green strategy and supports its overarching goal of reducing CO2 emissions. With the completion of the project, the Kujawy Cement Plant will become the first zero-emission cement plant in Europe in 2027.
