Science-Based Targets Initative verifies LafargeHolcim's CO2 reduction targets

The Science-Based Targets Initiative (SBTI), a joint initiative of CDP, the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), the World Resources Institute (WRI) and WWF, has described Switzerland-based LafargeHolcim's CO2 reduction targets as "adequate" and "consistent with efforts agreed upon at the COP21 World Climate Conference in Paris." These are aimed at preventing global temperatures from rising by 2 degree Celsius.

LafargeHolcim has committed to a 10 per cent reduction in emissions from kiln and pre-heater fuel to 520 kg of CO2 per tonne of cement in 2030 compared to 576 kg/t in 2018. Over the same period it will reduce its indirect emissions from electricity consumption by 65 per cent.
