At the heart of the Green Depot’s eco-friendly design is its reliance on solar power. This innovative approach translates into substantial energy savings, with a 100 per cent reduction in energy consumption for lighting, air conditioning, and electric forklift charging.

In a commitment to sustainable mechanized loading, Lafarge Africa has replaced traditional diesel forklifts with a state-of-the-art 3-ton electric forklift contributing significantly to the company’s carbon footprint reduction goals.

Green mobility further takes center stage with cement efficiently delivered to the Green Depot through electric trucks from the Ewekoro plant emphasizing the efficiency and sustainability of its supply chain.

Speaking at the launch of the Green Depot, GMD/CEO, Lafarge Africa, Lolu Alade-Akinyemi said, “The Green Depot in Abeokuta embodies our firm belief in the transformative power of sustainable practices. By seamlessly integrating solar energy, electric forklifts, and green mobility solutions, we are setting a new standard for environmentally conscious operations in the cement industry.”
