Lafarge Egypt Supports Sustainability and Green Economy

Within the context of COP27, Lafarge Egypt, a member of Holcim Group, continues its efforts towards a green economy in line with the most ambitious climate goals for 2030, Invest-Gate reports.

Besides, the company is looking forward to sharing its global experiences in the manufacture of the finest cement that complies with environmental sustainability.

“Egypt has a clear strategy for a better world, in addition to many success stories in achieving sustainable development goals.” Solomon Baumgartner Aviles, CEO of Lafarge Egypt, says.

In this regard, Lafarge has thrived to reach 20% of alternative fuel use and is seeking to raise this percentage to 50% in the near future. Moreover, Lafarge is conducting extensive research to strengthen the industry in light of climate challenges; reducing energy use.

The company has already succeeded in decreasing consumption by 10% during 2021. This is done to be fully in line with the strategy of Holcim to promote the Net Zero agreement as well as the partnership between Holcim Group and SBTi, which looks beyond Vision 2030, setting climate targets in the cement sector by 2050.

“Lafarge Egypt produces the widely used pozzolanic cement with lower clinker, which is characterized by reducing carbon emissions by 10%. Additionally, Lafarge Egypt works exclusively on two products that reduce carbon dioxide emissions by up to 60%. More specifically, Lafarge produces two products: ECO Planet and ECO Planet Prime, which is being used for the first time in the Egyptian market,” Solomon adds.

Lafarge Egypt proudly undertakes its social responsibility, as it unites with the community to bring to public attention the importance of the green economy, by providing sessions to raise awareness among journalists. Regarding the voluntary side, Lafarge has allied with Plastic Bank to clean beaches within a Memorandum of Understanding in Kafr El-Sheikh Governorate.
