Holcim's commitment to building a circular world
With circularity at the core of its business, Holcim continually innovates to build better with less following the principles of reduce, recycle and regenerate. Holcim is at the forefront of reducing the footprint of buildings across their entire lifecycle, from low-carbon construction to more energy-efficient buildings in use, all the way to green retrofitting.
As a world-leader in recycling Holcim recycles over 50 million tons of materials across its business today on its way to doubling this to reach 100 million tons by 2030, with applications ranging from the world’s first cement with 20% construction & demolition waste inside, to roofing shingles containing upcycled plastic. Holcim is committed to regenerating ecosystems from land to ocean to preserve our planet, bringing more nature into cities with its solutions from green roofs to Hydromedia permeable concrete, all the way to restoring marine ecosystems with bioactive concrete reefs.
On land, Holcim is engaging with urban leaders around the world with its Circular Cities Barometer to fast track progress towards circular construction. On the ocean, Holcim is recovering marine plastic waste with the Circular Explorer, the first-of-its-kind 100% solar powered recycling catamaran operating in Manila Bay, Philippines. With GO CIRCULAR Holcim is uniting these initiatives to scale up their impact, racing around the world to promote circular living based on the principles of “reduce, reuse, recycle.”
