LafargeHolcim introduces ECOPact, the industry’s broadest range of green concrete, delivering high-performing, sustainable and circular benefits.

Jan Jenisch, CEO: “I am proud to introduce ECOPact, the industry’s broadest range of green concrete for high-performing, sustainable and circular construction. Building on the success of ECOPact in Switzerland, Germany and France, we are now introducing it across the Americas.

With the rollout of this Green Concrete, we are accelerating the transition to more sustainable building materials for greener construction.”

With the rollout of ECOPact across the Americas, the company makes a significant contribution to sustainable construction, where it sells roughly 15 million m3 of ready-mix concrete every year.

ECOPact is sold at a range of low-carbon levels, from 30% to 100% fewer carbon emissions compared to standard (CEM I) concrete. Where regulatory conditions allow, ECOPact products integrate upcycled construction and demolition materials, further closing the resource loop.

With the industry’s leading Research and Development (R&D) organization, the company dedicates 50% of its innovation resources to low carbon solutions, with 40% of its patents currently in this area.

The company embraces a circular business model with leading operations in waste treatment and demolition waste upcycling. Its Susteno brand of cement, for example, is the first and only resource-saving cement in Europe that uses fine mixed granulate from demolished buildings as an additive.
