Sustainable Development


Sustainability is rooted in the core of our strategy. At Lafarge Iraq, we are accelerating the shift to circular, sustainable and energy-efficient cities with more nature inside. We are executing our net-zero 1.5°C-aligned targets with speed and scale to decarbonize building across its lifecycle.

Our approach to sustainability is oriented around four key pillars: climate, circularity, nature and people.
