Holcim Innovation Hub: Advancing net-zero building

The Holcim Innovation Hub – inaugurated in September 2023 – showcases Holcim’s sustainable building solutions and serves as a co-creation lab to accelerate low-carbon, circular and energy-efficient building worldwide.

Based in Holcim’s industry-leading R&D center in Lyon, France, the Innovation Hub is where key stakeholders across the construction value chain gather to advance net-zero building. It offers working spaces where startups and think tanks can accelerate innovation together.

The Innovation Hub also serves as an urban dialogue platform to explore the future of sustainable cities and their construction via interactive exhibits and events.

“It’s a very exciting time for the building sector, with so much momentum in innovation to advance sustainable solutions. At Holcim, we want to partner with the best and brightest innovators to accelerate the transition to low-carbon, circular and energy-efficient building. Our Innovation Hub is designed to host partners – from startups to architects – to explore new solutions together.”

The immersive showroom demonstrates how Holcim’s innovative and sustainable solutions decarbonize buildings throughout their lifecycle.

These include low-carbon materials such as ECOPact concrete and ECOPlanet cement to build better with less, and roofing, insulation and facade systems that drive energy efficiency to improve in-use sustainability.

Solutions such as ECOCycle® – Holcim’s proprietary circular technology platform – drive circular construction. The technology enables the recycling of up to 100% construction demolition materials into new building solutions.

Startups, think tanks and working groups unite throughout the year during events hosted at the Holcim Innovation Hub. Together we foster forward-looking exchanges with key stakeholders across the construction value chain to accelerate the shift to sustainable building.
