ECOPact is sold at a range of low-carbon levels, from 30% to 100% less carbon emissions compared to standard (CEM I) concrete. Where regulatory conditions allow, ECOPact products integrate upcycled construction and demolition materials, further closing the resource loop.
After a successful market adoption in Europe (France, Germany, Switzerland), Aggregate Industries, a member of the LafargeHolcim family of companies in the US, launched ECOPact low-carbon concrete brand in the US Mid-Atlantic and Northeast Regions. These regions operate throughout the Washington, D.C. and Boston metropolitan areas, and will be the first to roll out this innovative solution in North America.
With this new ECOPact family, Aggregate Industries and LafargeHolcim lead the way to low-carbon and circular construction to enable sustainable living worldwide. In the United States, the LafargeHolcim family of low-carbon products and solutions ranges from a wide portfolio of low-carbon concrete, low-clinker cements, recycled aggregates and services that promote sustainability.
Globally, 40% of LafargeHolcim’s patent portfolio concerns sustainable products and more than half of its research and development budget is allocated to finding more low-carbon and sustainable solutions.
