The UN Race to Zero campaign, led by UN High Level Climate Champions for the UK and Chile, Nigel Topping and Gonzalo Muñoz, partners with the Climate Group to kick off Climate Week NYC. With contributions from Alok Sharma, Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and the COP President-Designate, global figures, city leaders and CEOs of the world’s most significant companies, this event frames the zero carbon growth agenda and brings to life the race to a healthier, fairer, more resilient future underway and accelerating in every part of the global economy. LafargeHolcim participated in the 2020 event.
LafargeHolcim's CEO Jan Jenisch discusses the third quarter 2020, with a particular focus on employees and their sustained efforts to keep the Group's people and communities safe during Covid-19. He highlights the fact that the action plan HEALTH, COST & CASH is delivering well ahead of targets and spotlights the acceleration the Group is making in its journey to become a net zero company.
GE Renewable Energy, COBOD and LafargeHolcim announced that they will partner to co-develop wind turbines with optimized 3D printed concrete bases, reaching record heights up to 200 meters. The three partners will undertake a multi-year collaboration to develop this innovative solution, which will increase renewable energy production while lowering the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE) and optimizing construction costs. The partners will produce ultimately a wind turbine prototype with a printed pedestal, and a production-ready printer and materials range to scale up production. The first prototype, a 10-meter high tower pedestal, was successfully printed in October 2019 in Copenhagen. By exploring ways to economically develop taller towers that capture stronger winds, the three partners aim to generate more renewable energy per turbine.
On Wednesday October 21, 2020, Jan Jenisch, LafargeHolcim CEO, spoke at the Business Insider Global Trends Festival on the topic of sustainability and how we are shaping a greener, smarter world that works for all.
With speakers such as Reed Hastings (Netflix), Sergio P. Ermotti (UBS), Christoph Franz (Roche), Carlos Watson (OZY Media), Nouriel Roubini (Roubini Macro Associates), and many other business leaders from Asia, Europe, the US, and the UK, this conference offered a truly global perspective of how COVID-19 has impacted business around the world and what the main global trends are.
Jan Jenisch spoke about our vision for our industry and how we are "Reinventing Construction for a Net Zero Future", the title of his speech.
