In line with the latest standard of the Global Reporting Initiative’s G4, Lafarge Africa Plc has announced the launch of its 2015 sustainability report, which is aimed at increasing the company’s level of transparency in sharing its sustainable development performance with stakeholders.
The unveiling of the report took place at the grand finale of the third edition of the Lafarge Africa National Literacy Competition in Lagos.
According to the Managing Director of Lafarge Africa, Mr Michel Puchercos, the company was driven by the ambition to set new standards and help transform the way the industry works.
Mr Puchercos said the report would help the company to review, prioritise and take key decisions for improving its sustainability efforts.
Speaking at the event, Chairman of Lafarge Africa Plc, Mr Mobolaji Balogun, explained that the report “is a voluntary disclosure beyond listing requirements.”
He also said the sustainability was a key part of the company’s corporate strategy, both at the group level and in Nigeria.
Mr Balogun noted that the sustainability development strategy, also known as the 2030 Plan, remains the company’s internal roadmap on how it intends to play its own part in addressing the planet’s biggest issues as the company has the opportunity and responsibility to make a positive difference.
“The report reiterates Lafarge’s commitment to promoting best practices and engaging with the company’s internal and external stakeholders,” he said.
