Launching carbon-neutral solutions

In 2020 Holcim introduced ECOPact, the industry’s broadest range of green concrete for high-performing, sustainable and circular construction. ECOPact is sold at a range of low-carbon levels, from 30% to 100% less 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.

Holcim offers the broadest portfolio of sustainable products and solutions with the industry’s leading R&D organisation and global innovation network with 50% of patents dedicated to low-carbon solutions and more than 50% of resources focused on low-carbon products. In 2019, one third of 2019 net sales stemmed from a portfolio of sustainable solutions.
