LafargeHolcim: Innovation In The Building Industry

Would you believe a building materials company has become the world’s largest recycling company?

As a leader in the climate sector, LafargeHolcim’s approach to accelerating the green transformation paves the way for others to follow. Putting sustainability at the centre of its business strategy, LafargeHolcim has set the most ambitious 2030 emissions reduction target in its industry. The team is confident that with its rigorous science-based approach and a focus on innovation, achieving carbon neutrality in construction is possible. Through a use of new technologies such as digitalisation and 3D printing, the team is pioneering green building solutions across the world.

“As the world’s global leader in building solutions, we are shaping the future of construction, right here and right now,” said Jan Jenisch, CEO, LafargeHolcim. “The future is green, the future is circular, the future is digital.”

Concrete is already the second most used material in the world and, as cities continue to grow and new cities are forged, we need to use this material in a sustainable way. This is why LafargeHolcim insists we must innovate if we are to responsibly and sustainably house a global population of over 9.7 billion by 2050.

The world’s growing population is also becoming more urbanized. Resource management and a cradle-to-cradle approach is essential to the future sustainability of both the building sector and city infrastructure. By using more recycled materials in its operations, LafargeHolcim is embracing the circular economy to create low-carbon building solutions and new opportunities.

“By giving a second life to construction and demolition waste, we can preserve Earth’s precious resources,” said Philippe Block, Professor ETH Zurich, and Board member of LafargeHolcim. “I see a great potential in this area, when you consider that 1.6 billion people lack access to adequate housing in the world today.”

Concrete is not only versatile and durable, it is a man-made resource that is infinitely recyclable. LafargeHolcim is proving that as we continue to evolve and grow, so too can the circularity of our resource use. The team is striving to keep proving that the future isn’t written, it’s built.
