The Road to Sustainability

At  CN  we  have a proud history of caring for our people, our environment, our
legacy and our community.

COMMUNITY RELATIONS

The concrete dreams we build aren’t just for our customers and company. They’re also for the people around us who benefit from development projects that improve their quality of life.

Common Misperceptions

Polluted and unclean air

MYTH
V/S

Bees thriving in the area

REALITY

While a common misperception is that the air around CN’s plant is unclean due to the company’s activities, the thriving beehives at the CN quarry prove otherwise, noting that bees have been used as biological indicators since 1962 to monitor environmenal pollution.

Health Implications of Cement Manufacturing

MYTH
V/S

Clean Bill of Health

REALITY

Periodic and thorough physical examinations are done to all CN employees to monitor their health. Their close proximity to the cement plant has not affected their health in any way, disproving an association between cement manufacturing and poor health; a fact further confirmed by the internationally-renowned German scientific institute VDZ.

CN Activities are Damaging the Environment

MYTH
V/S

CN’s Environmental Performance

REALITY

Contrary to certain misperceptions, CN invests heavily in environmental sustainability and operates according to the highest international standards of environmental performance, be it as related to the rehabilitation of its quarry or otherwise.

Inexistence of Quarries and Cement Plants in Developed Countries in Proximity of Large Cities

MYTH
V/S

Existence of Quarries and Cement Plants in Proximity of Large Cities

REALITY

While some believe that Lebanon is an exception in having cement manufacturing plants in proximity of villages and large cities, the reality is that even in some of the most developed and environmentally-conscious countries such as Germany, Sweden, or Italy, many of their cement plants are located in the vicinity of cities or villages.

Petcoke Emits Harmful SO2 and is no longer used in Cement Production

MYTH
V/S

The Widespread and Safe use of Petcoke

REALITY

Petcoke is used in many cement plants. In fact, the production process results in absorption of the SO2 originating from petcoke into the final product as gypsum where it contributes to the properties of cement.
