Building Progress for People and the Planet
At the heart of everything we do at Holcim is the mission to create a more sustainable world. This means empowering every customer and community to build more with less. It means providing the highest-quality products with the smallest-possible environmental footprint, which equates to better business for our customers. It means being a trusted leader that everyone from contractors to municipalities can turn to for solutions designed to drive progress and make an impact on their world. And it means leading by example.
For us, the ultimate fuel behind building more with less starts at home—within the walls of Holcim offices, plants and facilities. It is here we can make, and are making, our first and greatest impact through our own sustainable practices to recycle, significantly reduce carbon emissions, and utilize renewable energy resources and alternative fuels that support a healthier planet.
Committed to Net Zero
Today’s global climate crisis demands more than carbon reduction. To reverse the damage and build a sustainable planet for future generations, we must aim for a net-zero-carbon existence and have the courage to take critical steps to build continual and significant progress. Holcim has taken the challenge head on by transforming our business standards; setting substantial goals of sustainable development; and raising the bar for green product innovation, performance and continuous improvement.
At Holcim, we are committed to decarbonizing the building industry for a net-zero future. And, when you look at the decarbonization plans we deploy across our business, you can be confident that we will decarbonize at scale. One key driver is Holcim’s science-driven approach to becoming a net-zero company. In fact, we were among the first companies worldwide to have our 2030 and 2050 CO2 reduction targets validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
