Bamburi Cement parent company Holcim, which changed its name from LafargeHolcim earlier in May, has launched its new Group identity uniting all its market brands. At the forefront of green building solutions, Holcim is committed to playing an essential role to accelerate the world’s transition to a net zero and inclusive future.
“Today marks a milestone for our company in our transformation to become the global leader in innovative and sustainable solutions,” Jan Jenisch, Chief Executive Officer at Holcim said. “Our world is changing in many ways, with population growth, urbanization and the climate challenge. We are determined to play our part to accelerate low-carbon and circular construction so that we build a net zero future and raise living standards for everyone.”
Holcim is home to some of the world’s most trusted brands in its sector including Lafarge, Holcim, ACC, Aggregate Industries, Ambuja Cements, Firestone Building Products and Geocycle. All market brands are retaining their respective market identities and names.
In Kenya, Bamburi Cement, a Lafarge company, is already accelerating its progress in sustainable construction especially in the areas of circular economy, environmental sustainability, and green cements.
Bamburi Cement Managing Director Seddiq Hassani said while Bamburi Cement remains unchanged, it takes Holcim family to reach this ambition, by making cities greener, empowering society with smarter infrastructure, improving living standards for all, building more with less, and becoming a net zero company.
“In Kenya we continue to make our push in sustainable construction with our initiatives ranging from sustainable waste recycling in our kilns, environmental sustainability with examples like the work we do at rehabilitating quarries, the low carbon green cements that we continue to roll out to the market,” he said.
With its new identity launch Holcim is reinforcing its focus on making cities greener and infrastructure smarter to improve living standards around the world, with a broad range of low carbon building materials. It is making its business smarter in a data-driven and agile way while fostering open innovation.
The new Group name is now live and the ticker symbol has been changed to HOLN (formerly LHN).
