The Board of the Holcim Foundation defines the strategies through which the Foundation encourages innovative approaches to sustainable construction. The Board inspires the programs of the Foundation by integrating architectural, scientific, cultural, and policy concerns and ensures that they are aligned with the current interpretations of sustainable development. Five members of the Board form the legal Board of Trustees of the Foundation according to Swiss law (Stiftungsrat). A Steering Group composed of three members of the Board manages the operational activities of the Foundation. The members of the Board of the Holcim Foundation are:

Search Help

Our website search engine covers the web pages including project descriptions and expert profiles, PDFs, images and videos on the Holcim Foundation website. To improve your search results, here are some tips:

Basic search

Our search defaults to term-pairing AND. If you search sustainable construction - then the search engine will look for any items containing sustainable AND construction


photovoltaic OR solar

Looks for either word


(clay OR mud) AND (school OR university)

Combine alternative terms for more specific searching


geothermal -heating

Excludes a term from results, automatically ANDs other terms listed


"zero carbon"

Use quotation marks to search for a specific phrase or combination

Wildcards (one or more characters)


Asterisk (*) matches any word or phrase - so archit* will find architect, architecture, architectural as well as architrave
