My name is Madhura Joshi and I work at the Holcim Innovation Centre where we work together to develop sustainable building solutions. I became a part of team Holcim in 2020 and I already feel that I'm a builder of progress. I feel motivated to be associated with Holcim where progress is circular in nature. I witnessed great disparities in living conditions. It is time to actively participate in this fight against climate change and generate possibilities to provide sustainable housing and facilities to even the less fortunate.
