Holcim Innovation Hub, a space to accelerate sustainable building

The Holcim Innovation Hub - inaugurated in September 2023 - showcases Holcim’s sustainable building solutions and serves as a co-creation lab to accelerate low-carbon, circular and energy-efficient building worldwide.

Based in Holcim’s industry-leading R&D center in Lyon, France, the Innovation Hub is a place where key stakeholders across the construction value chain gather to advance net-zero building. It offers working spaces to host start-ups and think tanks to accelerate innovation together. It will also serve as an urban dialogue platform to explore the future of sustainable cities and their construction via interactive exhibits and events.

The immersive showroom showcases how Holcim’s innovative and sustainable building solutions are decarbonizing building across its entire lifecycle.

These range from low-carbon materials such as ECOPact concrete and ECOPlanet cement to help build better with less, to roofing, insulation and facade systems that drive energy efficiency to make our buildings sustainable in use. Driving circular construction, solutions such as ECOCycle, Holcim’s proprietary circular technology platform, are enabling the recycling of up to 100% construction demolition materials into new building solutions.

Through an annual program of events bringing together start-ups, think tanks and working groups, Holcim’s Innovation Hub will foster forward-looking exchanges with key stakeholders across the construction value chain to accelerate the shift to sustainable building.
