Project Overview

Summary of action Annual flooding is commonplace in some parts of the world, including where the company operates. Over the last 17 years to address this issue, LafargeHolcim has worked with the local municipality of Bellegarde in the south of France to expand the flood prevention infrastructure through quarry rehabilitation and management programs and created wetlands that have been fully operational since 2015.
