Built Greener

 

We’re building a world that is greener.

To shape a world that is greener, we’re at the forefront of sustainable building solutions. For instance, we offer the world’s broadest range of green concrete, ECOPact, for carbon neutral construction. Driving the circular economy, we’re the world’s second largest recycling company, with 50 Million tons (Mt) of materials recycled across our business every year, on our way to 100 Mt by 2030. With concrete being infinitely circular, we’re actively recycling construction and demolition waste, to build the future while preserving the planet.

Our commitment to a net zero future

We’re walking the talk on our commitment to a net zero future. Becoming a net zero company, in 2020 we joined the Business Ambition for 1.5°C and set industry-leading 2030 climate objectives validated by the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi). We also launched the first sustainability-linked bond in our industry. With this EUR 850M bond we now have CHF 6 billion in ESG-related finance agreement.

On the fast-track to greener building solutions

We’re at the forefront of sustainable building materials and solutions. Which is in no small part due to 55% of our innovation efforts dedicated to greener building solutions. The results? Flagship products like ECOPact green concrete, enabling carbon-neutral construction, and OneCem, our cement with decreased GHG emissions.

Building the circular economy for a zero-waste future

We are the world’s second largest recycling company, recycling 50 million tons (Mt) of materials across our business every year, and we’re on our way to 100 Mt by 2030. Concrete is infinitely recyclable, making it an ideal material to build a net zero future. That’s why we are actively recycling construction and demolition waste into new green building products wherever we can. This approach results in success stories, like our alternative fuel systems at our Exshaw, Richmond, and Brookfield cement plants.
