Lafarge Canada Inc. (Lafarge) is Canada’s largest diversified supplier of construction materials. With its partners, Lafarge has undertaken the Cement 2020 Initiative, a broad initiative to improve the sustainability of their Bath cement manufacturing plant by the year 2020. Under this initiative and working in Partnership with Queen’s University, environmental non-government organizations and various levels of government, Lafarge is reducing its imported fossil fuel use and thereby lowering its Green House Gas (GHG) emissions through the use of local and/or regional, sustainable, Low Carbon Fuels (LCF). Lafarge’s goal is a 30% reduction of fossil fuel use by the year 2020. Under the sustainability model adopted by the project team, a sustainable fuel is one that is environmentally sound, socially responsible, and economically viable.
