Ethics & governance

Good governance is an integral part of sustainable development. At Lafarge, governance is based on strong ethical principles.


Shared values

The Lafarge Way is an approach that brings together the ethics of action shared by all our employees around the world. It is founded on a set of fundamental values: integrity, commitment, courage and consideration for others. All of these values reflect Lafarge's commitment to sustainable development and the Group's Principles of Action.


The Lafarge Way is based on 3 guiding principles:

  • Making our people successful: Lafarge aims to help everyone succeed,
  • Focusing on performance improvement: Lafarge seeks to improve its products and services,
  • "Multilocal" organization: Lafarge's operations are local but are closely tied to its global strategy.

Governance is the set of rules (both legislative and internal) that determine the way a company conducts its business. Governance is designed to guarantee transparency, oversight and ethics in business.

A code of business conduct

The Code of Business Conduct sets certain standards of behavior for all employees and executives of the Group as well as for suppliers of goods and services. The code is designed to build trust at all levels. The Code of Business Conduct is an important component of the "Lafarge Way". Each employee must be empowered to act in accordance with the code.
