Holcim US’ ECOPact Low-carbon Concrete Selected as Finalist in Next Level Awards Program

  • Company recognized among other construction industry innovators pushing boundaries for advancement in sustainable building materials

Chicago, Ill., February 6, 2023   —  Holcim US, the leader in sustainable building solutions, announced today its ECOPact low-carbon concrete has been selected as one of the top ten finalists for the inaugural CONEXPO-CON/AGG and the International Fluid Power Exposition (IFPE) Next Level Awards Program. This recognition reinforces the company’s ongoing mission to lead with sustainability in all facets of its operations. 

ECOPact provides the global construction industry with a versatile new solution to its carbon challenge offering up to 90% lower CO2 emissions compared with standard concrete mix designs. Composed of an innovative mix of supplementary cementitious materials, admixtures technology and construction and demolition waste, the concrete portfolio reduces CO2 footprints and supports a circular economy. As it works to accelerate the transition to a net-zero future, Holcim's ECOPact is leading the way toward durable, high-performance, low-carbon construction.

“At Holcim, we are committed to helping our customers reduce the carbon footprint of their buildings and infrastructure while building better and more with less,” said Toufic Tabbara, Region Head, North America at Holcim US. “We are honored to be recognized for ECOPact’s sustainable contributions and look forward to the important role it will play as we innovate and build progress for people and the planet.”

The CONEXPO-CON/AGG Next Level Awards celebrate exhibiting companies that are pushing the boundaries and developing next-level products, technologies and services designed to advance the construction industry. Voting for the awards will take place on-site at the show in March.

“We’re excited to recognize these innovative construction products that are taking the industry to the next level,” said Dana Wuesthoff, CONEXPO-CON/AGG show director. “And March 14-16, it will be in the hands of CONEXPO-CON/AGG attendees to determine the Contractors’ Top Choice.”

Holcim will be located at Booth C20405 and will have signage on display with voting details. Show attendees can vote on-site to determine the Contractors’ Top Choice. Attendees will be able to scan a QR code and vote for their favorite entry.

Finalists were selected by a diverse panel of Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) members. They were judged based on three criteria:

  • Addresses a common industry need in a unique and innovative way.
  • Benefits the industry across multiple applications for industry wide adoption.
  • Positively impacts the safety, sustainability, and workforce of the industry.
ECOPact is just one of many opportunities Holcim has found to manufacture and operate in a more environmentally sound way. The company aims to set the bar high for product innovation, performance and continuous improvement.
