Leading the way in green construction, Holcim is the first global building materials company to sign the UNGC’s “Business Ambition for 1.5°C” initiative, and thereby joining the “Race to Zero” with a 2030 SBTi-verified action plan.
Walking the talk on our commitment, we are:
- Setting ourselves ambitious 2030 climate targets that are validated by the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi)
- Accelerating our reduction in CO2 intensity to exceed 20% (compared to our 2018 baseline)
- Partnering with SBTi looking beyond 2030, to support the development of the first climate roadmap for a 1.5°C future in the cement sector.
Launching carbon-neutral solutions
In 2020 Holcim introduced ECOPact, the industry’s broadest range of green concrete for high-performing, sustainable and circular construction. ECOPact is sold at a range of low-carbon levels, from 30% to 100% less carbon emissions compared to standard (CEM I) concrete. Where regulatory conditions allow, ECOPact products integrate upcycled construction and demolition materials, further closing the resource loop.
Holcim offers the broadest portfolio of sustainable products and solutions with the industry’s leading R&D organisation and global innovation network with 50% of patents dedicated to low-carbon solutions and more than 50% of resources focused on low-carbon products. In 2019, one third of 2019 net sales stemmed from a portfolio of sustainable solutions.
