Impact builders

Leading building solutions provider Holcim Philippines Inc. and the Construction Industry Authority of the Philippines have partnered to support the government’s ambition to make the building sector a more impactful partner in the country’s progress under the Philippine Construction Industry Roadmap 2020-2030.

Leaders from the organizations headed by CIAP executive director Marco Maat joined by CIAP-Philippine Domestic Construction board executive director Doris Gacho, and CIAP-Construction and Manpower Development Foundation officer-in-charge Ofelia R. Usigan, and Holcim Philippines chief sustainability officer Zoe Sibala and senior vice president for Infrastructure and Industrial Sales Ram Maganti held a signing ceremony to mark the partnership on 2 October.

Under the memorandum of understanding, CIAP and Holcim Philippines will explore possible collaborations for training programs to raise the effectiveness of construction workers in using building materials such as cement and concrete. Holcim Philippines will also make available its facilities and equipment for these trainings.

The parties will also collaborate on CIAP’s Policy Reform work focused on sustainability and resiliency by sharing technical knowledge and insights, and promoting the use of innovative, sustainable, biodiversity-sensitive, and climate-resilient building solutions and technologies which contribute to the National Sustainable Development Goals. Furthermore, CIAP and Holcim will partner on advocating inclusive growth in the construction industry and upholding the rights of people and children.
