EcoPactZero, a natural choice for CO2-reduced cement in Germany
The non-governmental organization "Naturschutzbund Deutschland" (NABU), which supports the conservation of the Rheinauen chain of nature reserves, was planning to add two buildings to its nature conservation center in Bingen. This was a perfect opening for Holcim Germany to showcase its latest sustainable offering, the carbon-neutral concrete Holcim EcoPact Zero. Introduced to the market at the end of 2019, EcoPact Zero was laid for the first time in April 2020 to create the floor slabs of two buildings dedicated to conservation public education.
"More than 90 of our concretes are already made with CO2-reduced cement, so our carbon-neutral concrete, Holcim EcoPact Zero, is a natural next step," says Thorsten Hahn, CEO of Holcim Germany. "And it is only a step. We will continue to advance sustainable construction through innovation, digitalization and the continued support of our industry and customers."
