GO CIRCULAR

SAILING THE GLOBE FOR CIRCULARITY

With GO CIRCULAR, Team Holcim-PRB sails the world to preserve our oceans with a call to action to accelerate the shift to circular living.

GO CIRCULAR joined The Ocean Race for its first round-the-world regatta as the only Swiss team to compete in the 2023 edition of the legendary sailing marathon. Celebrating its 50th anniversary, The Ocean Race is a global climate-positive sports event, symbolizing Holcim’s net-zero journey. Racing for progress, the GO CIRCULAR team advocated for climate action at all stopovers and raised awareness for more circular living.

In November, 2023 GO CIRCULAR is joining Retour à La Base, an event that forms part of the IMOCA Globe Series Championship where it will serve as a qualifier for the Vendée Globe 2024-25.

In 2023 The Ocean Race drove a comprehensive climate research program that:

  • measured microplastic pollution,
  • gathered information about the impact of climate change on the ocean and
  • collected data to improve global weather forecasting. 

Throughout the race our team collected water and air samples, from edges of the world where no-one goes, and collected data that was shared with the World Meteorological Organization to advance climate science and global weather forecasting.

our vision

We only have one planet but are living like we have two. A global circular economy will enable us to fulfill people's needs while reducing the materials we extract and use — making human activity compatible with the planet’s safe limits.

With the world building the equivalent of New York City every month for the next 40 years, staying within our planet’s boundaries while we build to improve living standards for all is a must. At Holcim, circularity is at the core of everything we do, as part of our net-zero journey.

The global economy is just 7% circular, so the shift to circularity concerns everyone. With GOCIRCULAR we’re sailing around the world with a call to action to accelerate circular building and living from sea to city. This initiative is a symbol of our commitment to sustainability, putting circularity at the core of how we decarbonize building:
