LafargeHolcim reminds us that... the green construction revolution continues

Green building, which is designing and constructing buildings using eco-friendly materials and techniques, will continue to influence the global construction industry in 2017.
If LafargeHolcim's staggeringly unsustainable plan for Devon is an example of leadership on sustainability then, as the world's largest CO2 belching cement giant, we're all in trouble.

What's more, and no doubt for extra greenwash effect, the company has included the stock photo of a green roof and solar panels; they are not LafargeHolcim's line of business, but hey, cement's not green.

In fact, as anyone who has visited the Warsaw University Library will know, this building exemplifies the use of copper and glass - which is not LafargeHolcim's line of business either.

So what part will Aggregate Industries' parent company play in the green construction revolution?
