Holcim is committed to becoming a nature-positive company as part of its sustainability priorities. The recent launch of ECOPact low-carbon concrete and the low embodied carbon Waimea Community Dam are building progress for people and the planet.
Trees that Count
In New Zealand, we have partnered with local not-for-profit Trees that Count to mitigate some of our carbon footprint and help protect New Zealand’s threatened biodiversity. Our donation purchases new native trees for planting in public spaces, cared for long-term by community groups.
In Australia, we are supporting Greening Australia, an independent environmental enterprise committed to tackling Australia’s greatest environmental challenges in ways that work for communities, economies, and nature; planting millions of native trees and plants, protecting hundreds of native species, and supporting Traditional Owners’ aspirations for restoring Country.
Holcim will contribute to Greening Australia’s goal of establishing 500 million native plants by 2030, an achievement that will benefit future generations. In addition to financial support, our support will see Holcim teams invited to get their hands dirty at a range of planting events nationwide.
