Holcim Ready to Work with Startups at Innovation Hub

Holcim opened a global Innovation Hub this month at its R&D Center in Lyon, France, to showcase its sustainable building solutions and serve as a co-creation lab to accelerate low-carbon, circular and energy-efficient building worldwide. 

Spread across three floors, the Hub offers work spaces to host start-ups and think tanks to accelerate innovation together. It will also serve as an urban dialogue platform to explore the future of sustainable cities and their construction via interactive exhibits and events.

“It’s a very exciting time for the building sector, with so much momentum in innovation to advance sustainable solutions,” said Nollaig Forrest, Holcim chief sustainability officer. “At Holcim we want to partner with the best and brightest innovators to accelerate the transition to low carbon, circular and energy-efficient building. Our Innovation Hub, within our global R&D center, is designed to host partners from start-ups to architects to explore new solutions together.” 

Through an annual program of events featuring start-ups, think tanks and working groups, Holcim said its Innovation Hub will foster forward-looking exchanges with key stakeholders across the construction value chain to accelerate the shift to sustainable building.
