Promoting and rewarding sustainable construction more widely
Creating awareness and promoting excellence in sustainable construction since 2003, the LafargeHolcim Foundation is proud to announce the start of its next round of activities.
Infrastructure Space is the topic of the 5th International LafargeHolcim Forum for Sustainable Construction. The academic symposium takes place in Detroit, USA in April 2016.
Following the merger of Lafarge and Holcim to form the world leader in the building materials industry, the 5th cycle of initiatives of the former Holcim Foundation will take place under the name of the LafargeHolcim Foundation for Sustainable Construction.
LafargeHolcim fully endorses the Foundation’s non-commercial focus on advancing sustainable responses to the technological, environmental, socioeconomic, and cultural issues affecting building and construction. The Group has a global presence in 90 countries, enabling the Foundation to promote the application of sustainable construction practices even more widely and to enhance the quality of life.
The 5th International LafargeHolcim Awards for projects and visions in sustainable construction will open for submissions in July 2016. The Awards entries are evaluated by independent juries in five regions of the world, and the competition offers USD 2 million for a total of 59 prizes on regional and global levels.
