Social responsibility

Our approach to corporate social responsibility

Holcim aims to build capacity of people and organizations through investment and engagement, which goes beyond the act of corporate donation. All Group Companies have integrated this strategic approach in their business plan to meet local needs. The result is a rich diversity of projects and initiatives.


Providing a safe workplace

We recognize that the health and safety of our employees, subcontractors, third parties and visitors is vital to our business success. Our "Passion for Safety" initiative aims for continuous improvement. To achieve our vision of "zero harm" to people we pursue the best possible technical conditions in the plants and live a culture of safety throughout the Group.

Upholding human rights

Holcim's commitment to human rights is reflected in our support of the UN Global Compact. Group Company line managers are responsible for communicating, monitoring and implementing specific programs based on local needs. Our Social Responsibility projects include human rights-related activities such as access to shelters, equality and non-discrimination, health and safety, the right to education and the rights of woman.
The purpose of the "Holcim Stiftung Wissen" is to promote young scientists.
