The 2021 Annual General Meeting took place at Grafenauweg 10, 6300 Zug, Switzerland, on 4 May 2021.
Unfortunately, the situation with the ongoing COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic did not allow us to hold the Annual General Meeting in its usual format.
On 11 September 2020, the Swiss Federal Council decided to extend the COVID-19 Ordinance 3 until 31 December 2021. In accordance with this ordinance the Board of Directors decided to hold the Annual General Meeting without shareholders being physically present. It is with great regret that the Board of Directors had to take this decision, but it considers this step as the only feasible option to protect the health of shareholders and employees which continues to be Holcim’s priority. This means that shareholders have been represented at the Annual General Meeting exclusively by the independent proxy. As a consequence shareholders could only submit their voting instructions in writing or electronically to the independent proxy.
The Board of Directors regrets that this important event again could not be held in its usual format.
