Our Strategy

We are bringing our vision to life with “Strategy 2025 – Accelerating Green Growth.”

Our vision is to become the global leader in innovative and sustainable building solutions. We structure our strategic approach around four key pillars: accelerating growth; expanding Solutions & Products; leading in sustainability and innovation; and delivering superior performance.

Accelerating growth

Holcim’s profitable growth will be driven by innovative building solutions, from ECOPact low-carbon concrete to energy-efficient roofing systems. We will lead cement’s low-carbon transformation, with solutions like ECOPlanet, including the world’s first cement with 20% construction demolition materials inside.

We will further fuel our company’s growth with bolt-on acquisitions in mature markets in the aggregates and ready-mix concrete businesses. Strengthening our performance, we will scale up digitalization across our value chain, from operations and distribution to customer experience.

Expanding Solutions & Products

By 2025, 30% of our net sales will come from Solutions & Products. We’re expanding our solutions, from roofing and insulation to advanced mortars and green retrofitting. We are becoming a global leader in roofing with systems cutting across solar-enabling, cool and green roofs. These technologies make buildings more energy-efficient in use, while enabling cooler cities with more nature inside.

Leading in sustainability and innovation

Sustainability is at the core of our strategy. Holcim was the first in our industry to have 2050 net-zero targets validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) across all scopes. We are leading the circular economy by reducing waste and recycling materials across our business.

We are innovating to remain at the forefront of low-carbon and energy-efficient building solutions and driving circular construction to build better with less. Next-generation technologies such as 3D printing and pilot projects in carbon capture, utilization and storage are driving our 2050 net-zero ambitions. We will continue to deploy new smart technologies as part of “Strategy 2025 – Accelerating Green Growth”.

Delivering superior performance

Holcim delivers superior financial and ESG performance with best-in-class financial KPIs and a disciplined investment strategy, centered around sustainability, to drive profitability.

We will deliver these results by fostering a high-performance culture while operating at the highest level of ethics and integrity.
