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 Susteno, our cement with 20% recycled concrete inside.

We’re building a world that is greener, starting with reimagining our concrete. ECOPact offers a range of low carbon concrete options (from 30% to 100% reduced carbon emissions compared to a standard concrete). A sustainable choice for all future builds.
