SBTi validates LafargeHolcim’s carbon emissions targets

LafargeHolcim’s targets to reduce emissions are consistent with global efforts agreed at the COP21 world climate conference in Paris, says The Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi).

These efforts seek to keep temperatures below the ‘2°C’ threshold, the SBTi adds.

The SBTi has approved LafargeHolcim’s commitment to reduce scope 1 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 10% per tonne of cementitious materials by 2030 from a 2018 base year. LafargeHolcim has also committed to reduce scope 2 GHG emissions from purchased electricity by 65% within the same timeframe.

Magali Anderson, chief sustainability officer at LafargeHolcim, says: “Our ambition to lead the industry in reducing carbon emissions is a key element of our Strategy 2022 – Building for Growth. The independent certification of our ambitious targets by the Science Based Targets initiative is a huge motivation for us to lead our industry towards low-carbon construction. Through continuous innovation in our production facilities and our product portfolio we will reduce carbon emissions even further.”

The SBTi is a global collaboration between the Carbon Disclosure Project, the United Nations Global Compact, the World Resources Institute and the World Wildlife Fund for Nature.
