At Holcim we want to partner with the best and brightest innovators to accelerate the transition to low carbon, circular and energy-efficient building. Our Innovation Hub, within our global R&D centre, is designed to host partners from start-ups to architects to explore new solutions together.”

Miljan Gutovic, region head Europe at Holcim, added, “Holcim’s Global Innovation Hub is at the core of our decarbonisation journey. Our R&D teams here are focused on driving low carbon formulation to scale up solutions like ECOPact, the world’s broadest range of low carbon concrete, all the way to
ECOCycle, our circular technology platform recycling concrete into new materials to build cities from
cities. Our Innovation hub is a great platform to put our expertise to work with our partners to scale up
our impact.”
