Low Carbon Cement Replacements

Low Carbon Cement Replacements

We offer enhanced environmental performance with low carbon cement replacements.

What is a Low Cement Replacement? Cement has a high carbon content due to the manufacturing process. Cement replacements are materials which have similar properties to cement but have much lower embodied carbon. Depending on the application, they can be used to replace up to 70% of the cement content in concrete.

Building a Green World

In 2020 we accelerated our climate action, starting our net zero journey setting the most ambitious targets in the industry, validated by SBTi. We also launched ECOPact green concrete and ECO Label to empower sustainable choices. We recycled over 46m tons of materials, and earned even more global recognition as a climate leader.
