Building materials

Making low-carbon construction possible at scale


We are making low-carbon construction possible at scale around the world – from Zurich to New York, Mexico to Manila – with our green building materials. We launched the world’s broadest ranges of green concrete with ECOPact and green cement with ECOPlanet, delivering 100% performance and starting from 30% less CO2. Our building materials are in line with the most advanced sustainability certifications, from LEED and BREEAM to WELL.

The University of St. Gallen in Switzerland chose ECOPact+ to construct its new learning center. ECOPact+ contains local recycled aggregate and ECOPlanet Susteno circular cement, reducing CO2 and conserving natural resources.

Driving circular construction


To build better with less, we are driving circular construction by developing products and solutions that reduce material usage and minimize carbon footprint.
