With “Strategy 2025 – Accelerating Green Growth,” Holcim will become the global leader in innovative and sustainable building solutions, following the overachievement of “Strategy 2022” one year in advance. With “Accelerating Green Growth,” Holcim will achieve profitable growth across all our businesses, fueled by sustainability and innovation. We will accelerate the expansion of our Solutions & Products business to reach 30% of Group sales, positioning our company in the most attractive segments of the construction value chain with new technologies.
STRATEGY 2025 HAS FOUR VALUE DRIVERS:
With today’s megatrends, from the rise in population and urbanization to improving living standards, the construction sector has never been more attractive. In this context, we will accelerate growth across all our markets with leading profitability and cash flow.
Holcim’s profitable growth will be driven by innovative building solutions, from ECOPact green concrete to energy-efficient roofing systems. We will lead cement’s green transformation, with solutions like ECOPlanet, including the world’s first cement with 20% construction & demolition waste inside.
Expanding Solutions & Products
We will reach 30% of Group net sales in Solutions & Products. Growing closer to our customers, this business will expand its range of integrated solutions and systems from construction and energy efficiency to repair and refurbishment.
This builds on our acquisition of Firestone Building Products, a global leader in roofing systems, as a new growth and innovation engine for the company. Roofing sales are already delivering double-digit growth in the USD 50 billion global flat roofing market and will double to USD 4 billion by 2025 with strategic investments and acquisitions.
Leading in Innovation and Sustainability
Sustainability is at the core of our strategy, with our industry’s first 2050 net-zero targets, endorsed by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). Holcim will remain at the forefront of green building solutions, with at least 25% of ready-mix net sales coming from ECOPact, ranging from 30% to 100% lower CO2 footprint.
