THE POWER TO SCALE

We have #WhatItTakes to build the #InternetOfNeed for building materials.

We operate a global network in over 80 countries with 80,000 employees. In total, we operate over 2,300 production sites for building materials, producing over 600 million tonnes of product per year.

Most importantly, we are deeply rooted in our local communities with teams on the ground and trusted brands.

WE EMBRACE DIGITALIZATION

Opportunities to exploit digital technologies are proportionately vast.

We have a good system architecture and an abundance of success cases in 80+ countries to learn from and replicate. However, innovation does not stop here. We are continuously seeking partners to help us speed up this evolution.

SOLVING GLOBAL SUSTAINABILITY CHALLENGES

1

ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINT

CO2 Neutrality : Capturing and transforming CO2, use of new construction materials and/or measuring, tracking and developing options to move towards neutrality.

Resource Optimization : Avoiding, minimizing, reusing waste from quarries to building sites. Proposing alternatives to tackle resource scarcity.

2

NEXT GEN CONSTRUCTION

Digital solutions and services to streamline overall project management, from design to construction.

Innovative Systems: Increasing use of automation, autonomous machinery and other new solutions to construction projects.

3

AUGMENTED CONCRETE

Enhancing the properties of cement-based materials beyond the core value of structural integrity.

Real Time Quality Control : Monitoring, testing, evaluating and adjusting the quality of materials across the supply chain: from raw materials to product delivery.

4

PREDICTED PERFORMANCE

Monitoring performance characteristics at construction sites.

Developing and applying accurate, real time prediction of demand for product quantities and types by job site.

  • OUR VISION
  • OUR PRINCIPLES OF ACTION
  • OUR GOALS

By drawing new connections between physical and digital systems, and by collecting and processing the appropriate data, we are creating the material of tomorrow and designing the construction of tomorrow.

Embracing the environmental and societal challenges ahead and differentiating our offer, we are staying one step ahead of the game and setting tomorrow’s standards in the building material industry.

#BuildSmarterToBuildGreener #HOLCIMINNOVATION

The Construction of Tomorrow approach relies on the principles of Open Innovation.

Because we believe in a collective effort, we are fostering collaboration with players of our ecosystem throughout several initiatives, working hand in hand with startups, academics, specifiers, research labs, etc.

This is the only way to innovate.

It's time to make a change

We’re open-minded, pragmatic and not stuck on any preconceived notions. Save one: digital technologies and a more data-centric approach will disrupt our business for the better.

If you’re a startup or digital entrepreneur … a technology leader or incumbent from another industry … and IF this mission resonates with you…
