The many initiatives we implemented in 2019 make us more capable in helping the country achieve its development goals. We are confident that our focus on innovation and commitment to sustainability enables us to continue being a partner of the country’s progress, helping our customers grow and driving our performance,” said Holcim President and CEO John Stull.
