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.

Six 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 Ambassadors

1210_Ambassadors.jpgThe LafargeHolcim Foundation works closely with Awards Ambassadors in all regions of the world who in their personal capacity support the LafargeHolcim Awards competition. The Awards Ambassadors liaise with architects, planners, engineers, project owners, builders, and construction firms.

In addition to the promotion through the associated universities of the LafargeHolcim Foundation, the Awards Ambassadors aim to raise the profile of the competition and showcase exemplary sustainable responses to technological, environmental, socioeconomic and cultural issues that affect contemporary building and construction.

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.
