Holcim Ltd, one of the world’s leading producers of cement and aggregates, has released its Corporate Sustainable Development report for 2007. The report can be downloaded from the Holcim website at http://www.holcim.com

Global economic and population growth and the impact on energy consumption and climate require more sustainable approaches in construction. Holcim contributes by providing innovative solutions and sustainable building materials. The voluntary emissions reduction target per tonne of cement for CO2 is within reach. The attainment is recognized externally as well: In 2008, Holcim has been rated "SAM Gold Class" and is thus acknowledged as a leading company in sustainability worldwide.

The report stresses that community involvement and on-going stakeholder engagement are an integral part of Holcim's business strategy, with half of all Group companies already having community advisory panels and around one percent of Group net income before tax dedicated to community projects.

The report has been assured against the AA1000 standard by an independent assurance provider. It includes feedback from various stakeholders and separate verification of CO2 emissions data. The report has been checked by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) for an A+ application level against the GRI G3 reporting framework.

A hard copy of the report can be requested by e mail at sustainable.development@holcim.com
