Lafarge Canada in Winnipeg has announced its continued partnership with 4Refuel, a provider of sustainable fuel solutions, to advance its commitment to reducing carbon emissions.

Lafarge and 4Refuel will collaborate to implement renewable diesel in Lafarge’s operations in its Manitoba market area.

Renewable diesel is a sustainable alternative to traditional diesel fuel that is made from waste oils and fats and produces lower emissions than conventional diesel.

Lafarge’s adoption of renewable diesel (R50) is in line with its pledge to become a Net-zero corporation by decreasing its carbon footprint and advocating for sustainability. With the utilization of renewable diesel, Lafarge is targeting that its reduction in CO2 emissions (scope 3) will lead to a substantial decrease in greenhouse gas emissions, enhance air quality, and encourage the responsible management of the environment.

“Switching to renewable diesel (R50) is a significant step forward in our sustainability journey,” said Tina Larson, VP, Manitoba & Saskatchewan, Lafarge Canada, Western Canada.

“Renewable diesel is a turn-key solution to reduce lifecycle-based emissions, and we are committed to serving our customers with low-carbon alternatives,” says Lauren Foulkes, Director of Sustainability, 4Refuel.

Lafarge is Canada’s largest provider of sustainable and innovative building solutions including aggregates, cement, ready mix and precast concrete, asphalt and paving, and road and civil construction.

4Refuel is North America’s largest mobile onsite refueling and fuel management technology company that serves diverse markets, including construction, commercial transport, mining, agriculture, and marine.
