Holcim join circularity Task Force at COP28.

Holcim has launched and become a founding member of the SMI Circularity Task Force in collaboration with the Sustainable Markets Initiative (SMI) and others. The SMI Circularity Taskforce aims to accelerate the development of the global circular economy, in complement to Holcim’s goal of recycling 10Mt of construction-demolition materials (CDM) by 2025, and 20Mt in Europe alone by 2030. Holcim and its partners launched the task force at the COP28 climate conference in the UAE on 4 December 2023. Holcim chair and CEO Jan Jenisch said "With our world’s rising population and urbanisation, we need to build better with less to raise living standards for all while preserving nature. Circularity is a gamechanger to make this happen at scale. At Holcim we are driving circular construction across all metropolitan areas where we operate to build cities from cities, recycling CDM into new building solutions. I am excited to be joining like-minded organisations to accelerate the shift to a more circular future together.https://www.agg-net.com/news/holcim-join-circularity-task-force-at-cop28

            Holcim's circular economy goal is a major environmental advantage and a step that more companies should adopt to aid in reaching sustainability.

                        Holcim's goal to recycle 10 million tons shows they're taking real steps for the environment.
