low-carbon materials

Making low-carbon construction possible at scale


As part of our commitment to decarbonizing building, we are moving the construction industry forward by developing the most advanced low-carbon products and solutions to build better with less.

What are low-carbon building materials?

Our lower-carbon, circular solutions reduce buildings’ carbon footprint and strive to have a positive impact on nature and the surrounding environment.

Becoming a world leader in innovative and sustainable building solutions


Our customers require advanced building materials that meet the highest standards of durability, strength and safety.

Holcim’s green building solutions offer a sustainable alternative to traditional construction materials, while guaranteeing the same high performance. We are leading the circular economy transition by embracing a “reduce, reuse, recycle” model.

This means building better with less and breathing new life into construction and demolition waste that would otherwise go to landfill.

ECOPact is the world’s broadest range of low-carbon concrete, delivering 100% performance with up to a 90% reduction in carbon emissions compared to standard concrete. When permitted by regulations, ECOPact+ concrete integrates recycled construction and demolition waste, further closing the resource loop.

Our ECOPlanet range of green cement includes the world’s first cement with 20% recycled construction and demolition waste inside. By helping us build better with less, ECOPlanet plays a key role in addressing population growth and urbanization.
