LafargeHolcim has announced a new group sustainability strategy called "The 2030 Plan" which sets ambitious long-term goals to help the company lead in sustainability and set new standards.
The plan encourages the entire construction industry to provide solutions to some of the planet’s biggest issues. It sets a vision and defines the next steps in that direction. Quantitative targets relate to the company’s direct and indirect impacts over the life-cycle of its products and services.
There are five areas of focus: Innovation, People and Communities, Water and Nature, and Circular Economy. Targets include:
• Produce 40 per cent less net CO2/t of cement than in 1990.
• Help customers avoid 10Mt of CO2 released every year from their building and infrastructure by providing innovative solutions.
• Reduce by 30 per cent the amount of fresh water used to produce each tonne of cement.
• Achieve a minimum of 30 per cent gender diversity at all management levels.
• Use 80Mta of resources made from waste produced in its operations.
LafargeHolcim states that "With the 2030 Plan, we turn this value into commitments to our partners and communities and, eventually, into business objectives. Our 2030 Plan will also help us adapt quicker to our fast-moving markets and drive our innovation. It will open a new stream of products and solutions, which will be relevant to our customers’ and communities’ needs."
