Environmental responsibility


LFB continued to work on reducing its environmental impact, by better controlling water and energy consumption, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and optimising waste management. LFB has taken concrete action to control the environmental impact of its activities by implementing various policies in this area.

75.2% of non-hazardous waste was recycled in 2022. The Alès site does its part to improve the energy mix
in France by consuming electrical energy that is 100% certified to be of renewable French origin.

Several audits and assessments have applauded LFB’s CSR performance:

  • The CSR audit performed by the CAHPP* ranked LFB as “Exemplary” for its compliance with the green index.
  • The “A++ label” was renewed for the 7th consecutive year.
  • LFB was also awarded the silver medal by EcoVadis for the 3rd consecutive year, thus placing it among the leading companies evaluated in 2022 in the same sector of activity.

The non-financial performance statement addresses the low-carbon strategy and its objectives. These results provide LFB with the impetus to actively work to meet its social responsibility goals. As an example, LFB published its CSR Charter which highlights the 10 commitments of its CSR policy.
