Nature

We are committed to delivering a nature-positive future. For Holcim, nature encompasses two main elements: water and biodiversity. We will protect and restore the natural resources we rely on. We are part of the solution.

We will accelerate and optimize our impacts by working with communities, businesses, non-government organizations and local stakeholders to increase water use efficiency, ensuring enough clean water exists for all, while protecting and restoring biodiversity. We will help shape a world that works for people and the planet.

Biodiversity


Our operations are strongly linked to natural resources and our business plays a key role in tackling biodiversity loss and degradation. We work with nature in a transformative, rather than traditional way.

Water


We commit to protecting the availability of freshwater resources and restoring the water we use to an equal or better quality, while promoting efficient water practices in our sites. We implement water stewardship actions in our own operations and beyond.
