Traffic and pollution free travel

15 July 2019

Reliable mass transit systems are key to sustainable urbanization. Without safe, efficient and affordable solutions for moving around the city, the economic benefits of growth can be overwhelmed by congestion and pollution. 


At LafargeHolcim we are proud to help cities implement and expand mass transit systems -- such as the metro systems being developed all over India. India already has more cities with more than 1 million residents than all of Europe put together. By 2030 India will become theworld’s most populous country. Through our Indian subsidiaries ACC and Ambuja Cement, we have the footprint to help advance these efforts on a nation-wide scale.
