Holcim at the global boardroom


Nollaig Forrest, Chief Sustainability Officer at Holcim, will be a speaker at the session "Green technologies: Where are companies placing their bets to meet net-zero targets?" joined by Klaus Zellmer, CEO of Skoda Auto and Eimear Bonner, Chief Technology Officer at Chevron.   

The speakers will discuss how green technologies can help companies accelerate their decarbonisation activities, drive higher returns and generate greater efficiency on their path to becoming net zero.


Nollaig Forrest, Chief Sustainability Officer

Holcim's diverse CCUS portfolio ranges from storage to utilization, including mineralization to create low-carbon building materials, or using CO2 as feedstock for industries such as chemical and aviation. The robust and highly diversified CCUS roadmap makes Holcim uniquely positioned as the right partner to scale up CCUS around the world. That is why I'm excited about this opportunity to come together with my colleagues from other sectors to discuss how we can work together to scale up CCUS projects globally.

ECOCycle® enables the world's first fully recycled concrete building

Carbon capture, utilization and storage

Decarbonizing building starts with our operations, and more specifically with cement manufacturing. CCUS is a key lever to accelerate our decarbonization journey. With more than 50 CCUS projects around the world and a commitment to invest CHF 2 billion by 2030, we are leading our industry’s transition to a net-zero future.
