At Holcim, climate action is at the heart of our strategy to build a net-zero future that works for people and the planet. Our approach to become a net-zero company is science-driven, with our industry’s first net-zero 2030 and 2050 targets validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
At Holcim we are committed to leading cement’s green transformation, in line with our industry-first 2050 net-zero targets, validated by the Science Based Targets initiative. One of the ways we are decarbonizing cement is by increasing our use of innovative low-emission raw materials, such as calcined clay.
For breakthrough impact on our net-zero journey, we are exploring a range of next-generation technologies to help us decarbonize the built environment. Carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) is one of the most important technologies in our portfolio. With over 30 CCUS projects ongoing, the techniques we’re testing today will lay the foundation to decarbonize our business beyond 2030.
Health & Safety is a core value at Holcim and top of mind every day across all our operations – and that includes mental health.
