Keynotes for OWP Lausanne 2022
Accelerating the shift to a circular economy
With our world's unprecedented prosperity, reaching over USD 94 trillion GDP, we are on a trajectory to consume the resources of over two planets by 2040. To make our growth sustainable, we need to accelerate the shift from a linear, "take, make, waste" economy to a circular "reduce, reuse and recycle" one, at an unprecedented pace.
As a global leader in innovative and sustainable building solutions, Holcim is driving circularity across its business, recycling materials at a growing pace. For instance, Holcim launched the world's first cement with 20% recycled construction and demolition waste inside with no compromise in performance and offer roofing systems in the US with the equivalent of five upcycled tires and 2000 upcycled plastic bottles in an average residential home's roof.
Jan Jenisch believes circular business is the opportunity of our time. It strengthens local economies and supply chains in a way that is good for people, creating jobs in the recycling, repair and leasing economies; and good for the planet, advancing our net zero targets in a nature-positive way.
Jan Jenisch is Chief Executive Officer of Holcim. Since joining the company in 2017, Jan has led Holcim to a new level of strength, with record profitability levels, revenues of over CHF 26.8 billion in 2021, with 70,000 people worldwide and industry-leading ESG ratings.
Building on his track record of driving superior performance, Jan is leading Holcim’s next era of growth to become the global leader in innovative and sustainable building solutions with an ambitious organic growth and M&A focus. With Holcim's "Strategy 2025 - Accelerating Green Growth", Jan is putting sustainability at the heart of the company's strategy. Taking a science-driven approach on this journey, he set the building industry's first net-zero targets for 2030 and 2050, validated by the Science-Based-Targets initiative and is accelerating the deployment of green building solutions around the world from ECOPact green concrete to Firestone green roofing systems.
Prior to Holcim, Jan served as Chief Executive Officer of Sika AG, where he achieved a new level of performance from profitability to sales.
Jan is currently the elected President of the Global Cement and Concrete Association and is a member of the Executive Committee of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD). In addition, he is an active member of the European Round Table for Industry (ERT) and a Board member of the Swiss-Japanese Chamber of Commerce (SJCC).
