Holcim is working to bridge this gap with solutions to the global housing crisis: our 3D Concrete Printing means that we can build foundations and whole structures at record speed and low cost; our Durabric earth-cement building products allow cheaper and more sustainable construction, and our precast concrete reduces the carbon footprint of buildings.

By 2050, 80% of the world’s population, close to 10 billion people, is expected to be living in cities. Greener cities will enhance quality of life and well-being for all, while contributing to a net zero future that works for people and the planet. At Holcim we play an essential role in making cities more sustainable, with our low-carbon building solutions available around the world.
