Holcim ECOPact low-carbon concrete

Tuesday, 11 May, 2021 | Supplied by: Holcim (Australia) Pty Ltd


Holcim has launched ECOPact, a low-carbon concrete product range which is designed to reduce the embodied carbon of buildings, infrastructure and homes.

Currently, 20% of Australia’s annual greenhouse gas emissions derive from construction, with building materials a key contributor.

ECOPact is claimed to reduce embodied carbon by 30 to 60% compared to the Australian National Life Cycle Inventory Database basecase. The range includes the option to achieve carbon neutrality through ECOPactZERO, which uses accredited carbon offsets through Climate Active to reduce embodied carbon by 100%.

ECOPact and ECOPactZERO are designed to make it easy for users to meet evolving tender requirements that stipulate embodied carbon reductions.

Holcim’s ViroDecs Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) provides users with the ability to understand the impact of the materials supplied into their projects. EPDs are independently verified and registered documents that communicate transparent and comparable data about the life-cycle environmental impact of products.

Every ECOPact product is supported by an EPD.
