BUILDING PROGRESS

Our world is growing, with the global population expected to reach 10 billion by 2050. Our future is increasingly urban, with 70% of people expected to live in cities by then. As 1.6 billion people lack adequate housing and sanitation, we need to build livable cities that work for all.

At Holcim we are part of the solution.

United in our vision to be the global leader in innovative and sustainable building solutions, we play an essential role to accelerate our world’s transition towards a net zero and more inclusive future.

Driven by our purpose to build progress for people and the planet, we are at the forefront of green building solutions.
