Welcome to Green City!
From houses to transport and energy infrastructure, select the city segment you want to discover and find out more on how you could use our sustainable materials and innovative solutions to build today the Green City of tomorrow.
To make road projects sustainable you can start with the assessment of the best solutions and materials to build roads in your area. Adding the power of digital, our ORIS platform for road design optimization helps reduce road project costs by up to one-third and carbon footprint by up to half while tripling road durability and lifespan.
The road pavement must be durable to ensure long lifespan and low maintenance of road surfaces - hence less CO2 emissions. On the top of this, the use of recycled aggregates can strongly minimize the environmental impact of road projects. For example, aggneo is our range of high-quality aggregates processed from recycled concrete and thus help meet the challenges of construction and demolition within a circular economy.
Ports normally require large volumes of aggregates and concrete. ECOPact, our range of green concrete, is ideal for such projects. ECOPact is sold at a range of low-carbon levels, from 30% to 100% less carbon emissions compared to standard concrete. Where regulatory conditions allow, ECOPact products integrate upcycled construction and demolition materials, further closing the resource loop.
Bridges normally require large volumes of aggregates and concrete. What better source for bridge-building in Green City than ECOPact, our range of green concrete that is sold at a range of low CO2 levels, from 30% to 100% less carbon emissions compared to standard concrete. Where allowed, ECOPact integrates upcycled construction and demolition materials, further closing the resource loop.
Whether looking to build a new bridge or rehabilitate an existing one, with Ductal® UHPC you can build more with less. From joint fill to connect precast elements to bridge deck overlays to ensure durability, or for pier jacketing to guarantee longevity and seismic resistance, Ductal® is ready to take on your next major challenge.
Through our experts in energy projects, we provide public bodies, investors, contractors, and engineering firms with a global offer and specific solutions for hydropower dams, such as our Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC) and ultrafine cements for repairs.
Airports are normally symbols of the green city’s arrival on the world stage and aesthetics are no small consideration. Ductal UHPC, offers unmatched qualities of durability, strength, aesthetics and ductility, while Artevia decorative concrete gives free rein to bold aesthetic and architectural projects. Both are also long-lasting, ensuring the airport’s long lifespan.
Susteno cement, the first and only resource-saving cement in Europe that uses fine mixed granulate from demolished buildings as an additive, is the perfect foundation for building green and circular housing in Green City.
To insulate those homes, Airium mineral foam has a lower CO2 footprint over its lifecycle than traditional insulating products, on top of offering better air quality and higher energy savings.
Enabling easy and efficient transportation through complex geographical areas is no secret to us. Holcim has unmatched know-how to make your tunnel project for metro, rail, and roads across the globe a success.
We partner with you to deliver tailor-made solutions to meet your needs from site preparation to the development of special products and solutions such as resistant and long-lasting cement, ultra-fine binders to reduce soil permeability, specific concrete mix designs.
Railway stations and railbeds require high volumes of aggregates -- for which our aggneo offer is perfect. aggneo is a range of high quality aggregates processed from recycled concrete that can be combined with services and solutions to help develop the rail network of Green City. Using aggneo ensures that resources are not unnecessarily depleted and reduces the impact on landfill sites.
