We are decarbonizing Holcim with green operations, from energy and mobility to product formulation, all the way to next generation technologies like carbon capture usage and storage. Our goal is to operate at least one net-zero plant by 2030.
Building better with less
We are decarbonizing construction, enabling our customers to build better with less. Our low-carbon materials, from ECOPact concrete to ECOPlanet cement, deliver 100% performance with up to 90% less CO 2 . We are also deploying smart design systems like 3D printing that can reduce material use by up to 50%.
Making buildings sustainable
We are making buildings more sustainable in use, decarbonizing our cities. Our broad range of solutions, from roofing to insulation, is driving energy efficiency and green retrofitting. This is where the majority of our sector’s emissions are generated, with 70% of the CO 2 emissions in construction coming from buildings in use.
We are driving circular construction to build new from the old. As a world leader in recycling, we are putting circularity at the core of everything we do, from recycling construction and demolition waste to upcycling plastic bags in roofing systems.
Our purpose – to build progress for people and the planet – guides our business. We are committed to becoming a net-zero company by 2050, leading the transition to a circular economy, and conducting world-leading research and development.
Our teams around the world are driving this positive change. Our stories reflect the people and communities we work with, the innovative projects we lead, and our commitment to sustainability in all aspects of our business.
