With innovation and sustainability at the heart of everything we do, we’re committed to building a world that works for people and the planet. A world that is greener, smarter and that works for all.
Shaping a world that is greener, we’re committed to a net zero future and at the forefront of carbon neutral and circular building materials and solutions.
Shaping a world that is smarter, we’re leveraging innovation and digital, as well as pioneering new technologies such as 3D printing, to build more with less.
Shaping a world that works for all, we’re part of hundreds of transformational infrastructure projects connecting society around the world. We drive affordable housing and schools. And we empower communities and our people wherever we operate.
Because the future isn’t written, it’s built.
Gioia 22 was built with cradle-to-cradle principles and an appropriate choice of the building materials. Our teams in Italy contributed with special building materials to support the inclined shape of the tower and build its twisted columns, particularly our low-heat and high-strength concrete C85. Holcim Italia also piloted ECOPact, the largest range of green concrete in the industry.
Building for the future, we operated the largest pour of EcoPact green concrete saving 350,000kg of CO2 in one day! The major 19-story addition for Boston University’s Data Science Center will bring data scientists under one roof for generations to come.
