The Board of the LafargeHolcim 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.

Awards Coordinators

The LafargeHolcim Foundation relies on the support of local representatives in more than 80 countries on all continents. Each country of LafargeHolcim assigns an Awards Coordinator to support and promote the initiatives of the Foundation, including its Awards competition within their respective country. To align these efforts, the Foundation conducts a series of workshops where Awards coordinators learn more about the critical role of sustainable construction in different regions of the world, and effective methods to foster discussion and action.
