Case study: Calculating True Value in the cement industry 

Global cement company Holcim needed to demonstrate the business case for its ambitious sustainability program. The company, together with its Indian subsidiary Ambuja, set out to do the quantitative analysis required to enable informed decision-making on which sustainability initiatives to invest in.
Future Value

How KPMG helped

Professionals from KPMG in the Netherlands and KPMG in India worked with Ambuja to investigate its True Value. The team monetized the impact of the company on society and the environment and set this off against its financial results, thereby revealing key areas of business risk and the potential impact on future profitability. At the same time, the KPMG team calculated the business case for proactive management of the social and environmental value.

Benefits to the client

With this True Value analysis, Holcim is translating sustainability into the language of the boardroom and building a foundation for management decisions on a business model that is sustainable in the long term. The result is the identification of strategic initiatives that will protect and unlock company value going forward, giving the company competitive advantage.
