Health, Safety and Environment: our core value
At Holcim, we believe that “if we’re good in health, safety and environment, then we’re good in business.” Health, Safety and Environment is a critical success factor for our operational performance and not something we regard as a separate activity. This is why it is seen as a core competency at all levels of Holcim’s organization, from site operators to top managers, and as a key component of successful personal performance. We are committed to:
- creating a healthy and safe environment for all stakeholders based on a true health and safety culture
- maintaining a global Health, Safety and Environment Management System designed to continuously improve our performance and actively manage risk
- targeting operational discipline by instilling a mindset of safe execution and follow-up
- communicating openly on relevant health, safety and environmental issues
Our strategy Ambition “0”
To realize this aspiration, the Health, Safety and Environment strategy “Ambition “0” was launched in 2017 and focuses on seven areas: on-site safety, zero-harm culture, systems and processes, road safety, control of health risks, environmental excellence, contractor partnerships.
