The Group is convinced that sustained economic growth cannot occur without social progress and environmental protection. Only by taking account economic, social and environmental challenges can the long-term success of Lafarge's operations be guaranteed.
Since 1833, the Group's strategy has been built on 2 pillars:
- sustainable industrial development over the long term,
- humanist principles: the values of respect, care and rigor have been part of the Group's Principles of Action since 1977, before sustainable development had even emerged as a concept.
Every year since 2005, Lafarge has ranked among the 100 best-performing multinationals in terms of sustainable development according to the "Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World" study organized by Corporate Knights Inc.
