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 Holcim 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 Holcim 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.

Implementation Stories

ECOPact Green Concrete by Holcim
Implemented by Sarthe Cancer Center in Le Mans (France) in 2021

The new Sarthe Cancer Center in Mans was recommended to use the low-carbon concrete ECOPact for the construction of radiotherapy chambers and dedicated scanner rooms. The scanner rooms were the subject of a particular implementation due to the use of X-rays. The construction site volume was of 13,000 m3, using 1,500m3 of low carbon solutions and 1,000m3 of concrete with recycled aggregates. The site should be completed by the end of 2022.


Cut by 27% the carbon footprint of the construction


The environmental benefits

  • Provide higher resistance against the corrosion caused by chlorine penetration and other environmental factors due to high SCM content and positive impact on the overall resistance and durability of concrete in comparison with the alternative
  • Reduction in C02 emission by 30-50% with ECOPact, 50-70% with ECOPact Prime, and above 70% with ECOPact Max
  • Replacement of virgin coarse aggregates with recycled concrete aggregates at a minimum of 10% in all our ECOPact+ Mixes

The Financial benefits

  • Significantly reduced maintenance and repair costs between 70-100% less than with market alternative (concrete)
  • Payback in less than 2 years on the additional investment based on Life-365 simulation
  • Additional benefits by qualifying for governmental incentive programs or by scoring higher credits in Green Building Certification (i.e. LEED or BREEAM)
