Holcim receives Double 'A' ranking for climate and water leadership
19 December 2022

CDP has recognised Holcim’s sustainability leadership with a double “A” ranking for climate and water management. Holcim is one of 15 companies in Europe and the first in its sector to achieve a double ‘A’ CDP score, out of 15,000 companies scored globally.  

Maxfield Weiss, executive director, CDP Europe: “CDP saw nearly 20,000 companies disclose environmental data this year, including 70 per cent of European companies by market value. COP27 showed the need for transformational change is more critical than ever if we are to limit warming to 1.5°C. I’m therefore delighted that European companies make up nearly half of all A List companies around the world, including 15 with two A scores and eight with triple A scores for climate change, forests, and water security leadership.” 

Jan Jenisch, CEO Holcim: “This double A CDP ranking is a great encouragement for all our teams who are putting sustainability at the core of our strategy every day to decarbonise building at scale. Ranking on CDP’s ‘A’ list for the third year in a row demonstrates the momentum we are achieving on our net zero journey and our focus on preserving nature and water across our operations.” 

Holcim is committed to replenishing freshwater in water-risk areas by 2030, with measurable goals including 75 per cent of its sites to be water-positive and 100 per cent of sites to be equipped with water recycling systems.
