Sustainable supply chain

Deploying sustainability standards throughout the value chain


Holcim is building a greener world by placing sustainability at the core of business operations. To multiply our positive impact, we extend the same rigorous ESG approach and standards beyond our own operations to include every aspect of our supply chain.

Our sustainable procurement principles

Our Supplier Code of Conduct and Sustainable Procurement Directive set the terms of engagements with our suppliers to ensure they are committed to upholding our high standards when it comes to sustainability.

Scaling up positive impact across our value chain


To ensure sustainability in our value chain, we engage with our suppliers across three key areas.

Health, safety and environmental standards


At Holcim, we have stringent health, safety and environmental standards in place. We expect our suppliers take the same care in safeguarding customers, employees and the surrounding environment.

Human rights due diligence


Human rights are a non-negotiable principle for our business and our suppliers’ operations. Our due diligence process is a key mechanism to identify, prevent, monitor and improve on human rights standards in our supply chain.

Innovation for sustainable solutions


On our journey to become a net-zero company, we work only with suppliers who share our commitment to building progress for people and the planet.

“At Holcim, we are proud of our commitment to sustainability throughout our value chain. Our suppliers, customers, partners and stakeholders trust that our high standards are maintained across our operations and beyond.”

Our environmental, social, governance, health and safety standards are not limited to the boundaries of our work. We take action for responsible sourcing in our supply chain.

Real change requires collaboration. That’s why we are involved in a number of partnerships including the WEF First Movers Coalition and Sea Cargo Charter.
