Leading building solutions provider Holcim Philippines’s efforts to drive business results and positive impact were recognized in the 2023 Europa Awards with the company bagging top prizes in the Digitalization for Sustainability and Water Resource Management categories.

The company further distinguished itself for being the only multiple awardee and a finalist in the Waste Management category.

“Thank you to the organizers for the recognition and to our people and stakeholders helping us make the company a stronger development partner of the country. These awards further encourage us to accelerate our transformation anchored on sustainability and innovation to win with purpose and help build progress in the Philippines,” said Holcim Philippines president and CEO Horia Adrian.

Organized by the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines, the Europa Awards recognizes companies for exceptional performance and contributions in promoting sustainability in line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and the Philippine Development Plan.

Holcim Philippines is accelerating its transformation as a sustainable and innovative building solutions provider with focus on advancing decarbonization and circular economy in the construction industry. Since 2018, Holcim Philippines has reduced its carbon footprint by more than 20 percent by producing more blended cements, replacing coal with qualified wastes as alternative fuels and raw materials, and improving efficiency of operations.

The company’s carbon footprint reduction program is aligned with the Holcim Group’s Net Zero direction and the country’s Nationally Determined Contributions. Holcim Philippines also is working with key stakeholders to encourage the shift to low-carbon products that reduce the footprint of the built environment.
