Holcim is teaming up with Greentown Labs, the largest incubator of climate tech startups in North America, to speed up innovation for more eco-friendly construction.

Through their "Terawatt" partnership, Holcim gets special access to startups focused on sustainable building solutions. They want to be among the first to adopt new technologies that cut down carbon emissions in construction.
