SD at Holcim

Holcim’s commitment to sustainable development is driven from the Holcim executive committee (Exco) and Board of Directors. However, ultimately responsibility for sustainability rests with every employee.

The dedication and commitment of line managers and their teams to implement Group programs and achieve sustainability targets is key to achieving our SD ambitions.

A steering group for sustainable development operates as a subcommittee of the Holcim Exco It is chaired by Exco member Andreas Leu and comprises senior managers including Holcim CEO Bernard Fontana, Exco members Roland Köhler and Urs Bleisch, CEO of Holcim Technology.


A second committee, comprising Holcim Group Company CEOs and functional experts, advises on the design and implementation of sustainable development programs.

The Corporate Sustainable Development Function is based in Switzerland and is led by Bernard Mathieu. The function has departments focusing on Climate Protection, Environment and Social Responsibility.
