LafargeHolcim Company response
Lafarge Cement Egypt shares Habi Center’s commitment to the environment and fully complies with local laws and regulations as well as international charters. As part of national legislation, the use of coal to provide the necessary energy to make cement requires an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) to be completed. Assessments were completed by the University of Suez and submitted to Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency (EAAA) in May 2013 and September 2015. In both assessments, the plant’s safe use of coal was confirmed. The findings of the initial assessment were shared publicly via a public hearing as per the local laws.
