Innovation drives sustainable productivity
In the face of today’s many challenges in the cement and mining industries, we can no longer continue business as usual. With resource scarcity, a growing global population and a need to take care of our environment, we must develop new and more sustainable practices to maintain and improve quality of life.
Adaptability is the key to success, which is why we have remained curious and inquisitive for over 135 years. We have a track record of discoveries that all reflect the courage to challenge convention, the curiosity to explore new territory and the ability to put solid know-how to use in new ways. This way, we take innovation to the next level and deliver better and smarter solutions that increase productivity and reduce environmental impact.
Digitalization with ambition
On the verge of the fourth industrial revolution, we are connecting our industry-leading equipment with sensors to collect data. There is a huge potential in harvesting, analysing, prioritizing, and utilizing data from start to finish of operations. Combined with the interconnectivity of technologies that come with the Internet of Things (IoT), digital solutions will play a huge role in the necessary transformation of the cement and mining industries.
We have already developed digital solutions that are game-changers in their fields:
Our vision is to drive success through sustainable productivity. This means we innovate to find ways to ensure low carbon footprint from the production of our products, lower carbon emissions and water usage from operations, easy end-of-line recycling as well as developing safer solutions for the people who work with our products on a daily basis.
Importantly, our sustainable innovations do not just make sense from an environmental point of view. They are also good business opportunities that cut costs, optimise output or increase productivity.
Let’s take a big leap forward together
Innovation is necessary for growth and for discovering better solutions. In this process, we prioritise working closely with our customers and partners to learn what challenges they face. Many of our innovative game-changers are based on experience from the field, from skilled operators who are able to identify the potential for improvements.
We enter into these partnerships to broaden our horizons, inspire us, and to show us new ways forward. In our experience, co-creation leads to the best possible results in the innovation process and ensures faster adaptation of any innovation. With a common focus, new collaborations, and a lot of courage, we will discover new potential together.
