Building a net zero future

The time for climate action is now – and we are making it happen


At Holcim climate action is at the heart of our strategy. We are working on four critical growth levers to accelerate the transition to net zero:

  • Developing low-carbon building materials like ECOPact green concrete and ECOPlanet green cement.
  • Enabling smart design to build more with less.
  • Driving the circular economy, doubling the amount of materials we recycle to 100 million tons by 2030.
  • And introducing new technologies to not only offer greener products to builders, but to decarbonize the way we make them.

How can we build a world that works for people and the planet?

Green building solutions

We offer the world’s broadest range of green solutions, like ECOPact green concrete and ECOPlanet green cement, making low-carbon construction possible at scale.

Smart design

Using smart design we can significantly reduce the environmental footprint of buildings and infrastructure. 3D printing, for example, can reduce the amount of materials used in construction by up to 70% compared to conventional structures.

Circular economy

We are driving the circular economy across everything we do, to keep materials in use for as long as possible, giving them a second life – and a third and a fourth – and using only what is needed to preserve nature.

Next-generation technologies

New technologies will transform the way the world builds. With more than twenty pilots in carbon capture, usage and storage, we’re exploring how to decarbonize the way building materials are made.

Net zero pledge

Industry-leading 2030 climate targets, validated by SBTi. Setting the first net zero roadmap in the cement sector, in partnership with SBTi.

Climate action is everyone’s business

Climate is everyone’s business at Holcim, from green bonds to green trucks, all the way to net zero incentives.
