Corporate Support for Climate Policies: InfluenceMap  D+
LafargeHolcim publicly professes support, but it has criticised the "material adverse" effect of moving away from fossil fuels. It has strong connections to organisations such as MEDEF and the European Round Table of Industrialists, which lobby against climate change legislation. Peter Hoddinott, CEO of Lafarge Africa and ex-VP of Lafarge, was president of CEMBUREAU (2013-2015), when CEMBUREAU strongly lobbied against reforms to the EU ETS, and for maintaining free allowances of emission permits for the cement sector.[1]
