Holcim Philippines Appoints Leaders to Drive Sustainability Performance

Leading building solutions provider Holcim Philippines, Inc. is accelerating initiatives to improve sustainability with the appointment of senior leaders to further drive performance in key areas. The company appointed Zoe Sibala, former VP of Strategy to SVP of Sustainability, and expand the role of Richard Cruz, VP of Health, Safety, and Security, to include the Environment portfolio. The appointments took effect last August 15, 2021.

"We intend to win with purpose at Holcim Philippines by having a positive social and environmental impact as we grow our business," said Horia Adrian, President and CEO of Holcim Philippines. " Having senior leaders focused on these will help us achieve our goal of leading the building materials industry in resource efficiency, environmental stewardship, health and safety, and corporate social responsibility. We are confident that Zoe and Richard will further fast-track sustainability initiatives so we can be a stronger partner of the Philippines in building progress." 

Holcim Philippines is accelerating programs for sustainability and innovation to drive business performance and contribute to building progress in the Philippines. Last May, Holcim Philippines published its first integrated Annual Report which follows the sustainability disclosure standards of the Global Reporting Initiative. 

This year, the company has invested to improve the energy efficiency of production facilities. It is also expanding its portfolio of blended cement products, which includes infrastructure and water proofing solutions Holcim Solido and Holcim Aqua X, respectively, to help customers build more with less. 

Furthermore, the company is helping address the waste management challenge in the country by converting qualified wastes into alternative fuels and raw materials for cement production. It is also participating in the rehabilitation of the Manila Bay through the Circular Explorer, a solar-powered catamaran sent by the Holcim Group that can collect up to four tons of plastic litter daily.
