In the transformation of the building industry, the key components are the use of resources, circular economics, water, and protection of biodiversity. Holcim is a building material manufacturer and has a special responsibility in relation to these issues. The extraction of raw materials for cement production often goes hand-in-hand with interfering nature. Transparency and open dialogue about the goals and effects of sustainable action are therefore paramount and the basis for credibility and trust – especially when it comes to local residents and citizens. That is why Holcim is publishing an environmental report for the first time for the 2020 reporting year that focuses on local issues: there is a separate report for each of the four plant groups Beckum, Höver, Lägerdorf and Dotternhausen.
All versions share a common section that Holcim Germany provides information about developments in Germany’s national company, industry, and at the Holcim Group level. The ‘local part’ shows the local data, facts and projects for one of the four cement plants Höver, Lägerdorf, Beckum and Dotternhausen as well as the connected grinding and mixing plants. The four key points of climate, energy, emissions, and circular economy are used to prepare the environmental information.
Miriam Sommerfeld Head of Environment, Holcim Germany: “Our sector is facing immense challenges in relation environmental issues. The next ten year will determine the course of action. This is where environmental management plays an important role. We are building four cement plants in Germany that produce clinker. The grinding and mixing plants are built on an environmental management system that we have been using for many years. This system is constantly evolving.
