Holcim publishes 2023 results

Holcim recorded a 7.5% drop in sales to US$30.6bn in 2023, ‘largely’ due to its divestment of its cement businesses in India and Brazil. On a like-for-like basis, its sales rose by 6.1%. The group’s earnings before interest and taxation (EBIT) rose by 0.2% to US$5.4bn, but by 15% like-for-like. It attributed this both to price rises and cost-saving measures in its cement and concrete operations. Net profit fell by 7.5% to €3.47bn, including a €1.7bn special gain from its Indian divestment. Holcim says that it implemented its Strategy 2025 – Accelerating Green Growth two years ahead of schedule.
