ESG/Ethical Impact

Our approach to sustainability is transparent, rigorous and science based. With this in mind, we submitted our upgraded 2030 climate targets, which are aligned with the new 1.5°C framework for the cement industry and received validation in November from the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). These include upgraded targets to reduce Scope 1 and 2 emissions per ton of cementitious material by 25% by 2030, as well as other indirect emissions on Scope 3, taking into account the recent optimization of the company’s portfolio in both baselines and targets. This is a true milestone for the company and industry. We have continued to evolve our industry-leading Scope 3 methodology and reporting with greater transparency and automation than ever before. We have gone beyond the categories recommended by the Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA) and have extended our greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory to all Scope 3 categories. Reduction targets for the most material categories in our value chain have been validated by the SBTi. Our focus on decarbonization was solid in 2022. We reduced Scope 1 emissions to 562 kg CO2 net per ton of cementitious materials, which represented a decrease of 2% on a like-for-like basis versus the prior year. This improvement was the result of our efforts in the use of industrial mineral components, which helped to lower Holcim’s clinker factor, and the increased use of alternative fuels in our cement kilns, which increased our thermal substitution rate. We will continue to accelerate efforts on decarbonization using the traditional levers of alternative raw materials, clinker factor and alternative fuels as well as implementation of our exciting, next-generation technology projects.
