Sustainable Development

Holcim’s global sustainable development journey started several decades ago and has become more explicit over the course of the last 10 years; today, it is an integral part of our business strategy. Our focus now is to promote and strengthen the sustainable development culture so that it continues to add value to everything we do.

Holcim has a key role to play in promoting and developing sustainable construction techniques and technology. The Holcim Foundation for Sustainable Construction is one way we are meeting our commitment. Providing sustainable solutions, Holcim demonstrates innovation by creating value that meets the needs of our  customers and stakeholders in an increasingly fast-changing  business environment. We aim to lead the industry in our innovative approach, providing customer solutions that achieve sustainability and cost efficiency.

Our industry is resource and energy-intensive, so sustainability is paramount when we plan our operations and design new solutions for our customers. We take our ambition – zero fossil energy, zero emissions, and zero waste – from the Holcim Foundation for Sustainable Construction’s ‘Reinventing Construction’ manifesto.
