ECOPact Green Concrete - Broad range of green concrete for high-performing, sustainable and circular construction

ECOPact range is the industry’s broadest offering of green concrete for sustainable and low carbon construction. The product is sold at a range of low-carbon levels from 30%-100% lower embedded carbon compared to standard (CEM I) concrete. The global brand ECOPact aims to make carbon-reduced construction available in all core markets where LafargeHolcim is present. The entry-level product is ECOPact, with 30-50% lower embodied carbon content compared to a mix design with CEM I. ECOPactPRIME has a CO2 reduction level between 50-70%. The product is technically more demanding providing a significantly higher reduction than the general standard available in a given market. ECOPactMAX exploits the technical possibilities to the maximum. This product pushes LafargeHolcim technical expertise to offer a top of the line product with a CO2 reduction greater than 70%. ECOPactZERO is a unique or carbon-neutral concrete, achieved through offsetting.
