Lafarge strives to build better cities by supplying sustainable Cement, Aggregates, Concrete and Gypsum.
Lafarge is a French industrial company specialising in three major products: cement, construction aggregates, and concrete. The company has become a world leader in building materials.
This project arose from the joint desire of WWF and Lafarge to contribute original research to move the construction sector towards a sustainable future. We examined 11 exemplary urban districts and neighborhoods around the world from inception to inhabited, using a systemic and holistic perspective. We extracted the success and failure factors, and uncovered new strategies that accelerate sustainable development both on a project and building sector level.
