Leveraging LafargeHolcim's global presence

LafargeHolcim is the leading global construction materials and solutions company serving masons, builders, architects and engineers all over the world. Our operations produce cement, aggregates and ready-mix concrete which are used in building projects ranging from affordable housing and small, local projects to the biggest, most technically and architecturally challenging infrastructure projects. As urbanization increasingly impacts people and the planet, we provide innovative products and building solutions with a clear commitment to social and environmental sustainability.

Our strengths

Our combination of strengths, developed over many years and unmatched in our industry, put us in a strong position to take advantage of the opportunities that arise from these megatrends. We have:

  • A global footprint with leadership positions in the vast majority of our markets
  • A diversified portfolio with a good balance between mature and developing markets positioned in highly populated areas
  • Industry-leading capability in innovation, enabling us to anticipate and meet the changing needs of our customers
  • Highly talented, experienced and motivated people from diverse backgrounds.

Four pillars of LafargeHolcim's strategy

Our strategy aims to further strengthen the company’s leadership position in the construction industry, drive shareholder returns and establish the Group as the partner of choice for our customers – involved early in the design phase of projects – to address the dual challenges of urbanisation and sustainability.

We have built our strategy around four pillars: cost leadership, an asset light approach, commercial transformation and sustainability.

Cost leadership and an asset light approach together enable the business to grow returns through disciplined management and allocation of capital, whereas commercial transformation and sustainability will differentiate LafargeHolcim from its competitors.
