Continued focus on Health and Safety; and acceleration of our sustainability initiatives 


Khaled El Dokani, CEO of Lafarge Africa, commented: “In 2022, we recorded 27.3% and 29.3%  improvement in net sales and recurring EBIT respectively, compared to FY 2021 results. The worsening  exchange rate situation led to revaluation losses, thereby constraining our Net Income growth to 5.2%.  We remain committed to our sustainability ambitions by utilizing affordable clean energy in our operations  and optimizing our green logistics strategy; among other initiatives that are in alignment with our net zero  pledge journey’’. 

2023 OUTLOOK  

Good demand momentum expected in 2023, albeit moderated due to the impact of the general  elections. 

We will continue to maximize volume opportunities across our markets and actively manage our costs.

We will consolidate our efforts on sustainability.
