On Thursday July 8th, Holcim released a statement to the public saying that all market brands are uniting to form a collective front that will actively 'build progress for people and the planet'. In a statement to the public, Holcim’s CEO, Mr Jan Jenisch said, “We are launching our new Holcim group identity as a symbol of our vision to become the global leader in innovative and sustainable building solutions,” he said.
With a deep desire to ‘play their part’ to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon future and circular economy, Mr Jenisch says the new group identity is necessary to accommodate for population growth, urbanisation, and climate change.
