CEO Bernard Fontana of Swiss cement maker Holcim talks to Reuters during an interview in Zurich, in this September 23, 2013 file photo. Last year, the 52-year-old Fontana launched a cost-cutting programme with the aim of restoring Holcim's return on invested capital (ROIC) to at least 8 percent after tax and boosting operating profit by at least 1.5 billion Swiss francs ($1.7 billion) by the end of 2014. Holcim's emphasis on cost discipline and higher-margin services comes as the global cement industry tightens its belt to adjust to a construction slump that has hit profit and dampened demand for building materials.
