The international ranking recognises organisations with the most advanced innovation cultures, inspiring disruptive ideas at all levels.
Holcim ranked first in the Sustainability category and featured as a finalist in the Early Career Innovators, while achieving 16th position in the overall ranking where it is featured for the second year in a row. Fast Company selected Holcim as the winner in Sustainability for its development of the world’s first 100% recycled clinker, putting circular construction at the core of how it is decarbonising building. This innovation has been scaled up across markets and enabled another breakthrough, the world’s first fully recycled concrete building, Recygénie.
Magali Anderson, chief sustainability and innovation officer at Holcim, commented: “At Holcim, our people are working to transform our industry every day. Innovation is critical to decarbonise building and transition to a net-zero future, and our teams are empowered to test bold ideas and new technologies to make it happen. I am delighted to be recognised by Fast Company as a company for people who want to make change.”
