Holcim’s leaders speak to Accelerating Green Growth

5 January 2022

Based on four value drivers – “Accelerating Growth,” “Expanding Solutions & Products,” “Leading in Sustainability and Innovation” and “Delivering Superior Performance” – “Strategy 2025 – Accelerating Green Growth” is the roadmap for Holcim to become the global leader in innovative and sustainable building solutions.

 

But what does it mean to the people leading the way?

Hear it directly from our senior leaders in the videos below, beginning with Solomon Baumgartner-Aviles, CEO Lafarge Egypt, speaking about decarbonization.

 

We are working on the innovative decarbonization of our value chain. We just commited to Net Zero by 2050, so looking at how we get there is important.

Circular Economy

Committed to making construction not only low-carbon but circular, Holcim is strengthening its position as world leader in recycling with the goal of recycling 75 million tons of material across the business by 2025, laying the foundation to build more with less. Magali Anderson, Chief Sustainability and Innovation Officer, says more here:

 
 

Circular Economy is one of the main levers to decarbonize cement, and we do it by using waste to replace the fossil fuels.

Chief Sustainability and Innovation Officer
 

Green and Novel Products

Growth will also be driven by green and novel products like ECOPlanet, which includes the world’s first circular cement with 20% construction & demolition waste inside.

 

I strongly believe producing zero carbon footprint in concrete will be one of our key pillars towards net-zero ambition.

Miljan Gutovic
Head of EMEA
 
 

Digitalization

As part of the new strategy, Holcim also will scale up digitalization from operations and distribution to enabling customers to build smarter.

 
 

It’s important to showcase how real-time information and real-time data can help our customers and ourselves make the right decisions for a new sustainable future.

Philipp Leutiger
Chief Digital Officer
 

Firestone & Roofing Systems

Under Strategy 2025, Holcim is continuing to expand its Solution & Products segment, enabling sustainable and innovative building from foundation to rooftop and increasing buildings’ lifespan and energy efficiency.

 

Solutions & Products not only provide synergies with our base business of cement, concrete and aggregates but it also allows us to drive forward with sustainable solutions and work on full building performance for our customers and owners.

Global Head of Solutions & Products
 
 

All of these activities are part of one mission: “Strategy 2025 – Accelerating Green Growth.”
