Holcim Mexico concrete obtains Environmental Product Declaration

Holcim Mexico, part of the LafargeHolcim Group, has gained the Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for a type of highly-specialised premixed concrete, the first company in Mexico to obtain the EPD. The premixed concrete is being used in the construction of Mexico City’s new international airport.

The environmental performance of the Holcim concrete was verified by Labeling Sustainability Inc., which developed the life-cycle analysis and EPD, and the Institute for Environmental Research and Education.

“The EPD report provides measurable and certifiable information about the environmental performance of a product, material, or service,” explained Holcim Mexico in a press release. “The analysis considered a product’s lifespan, in this case concrete, using the UNE-EN ISO 14025 international norm.”

The date reviewed during the verification process includes a product’s impact on global warming, ozone layer depletion, acidification potential, eutrophication, and photochemical smog/ozone formation.

“By using this type of concrete, construction companies have a greater probability of achieving environmental and sustainable certifications, such as LEED, which is awarded by the US Green Building Council,” concluded Holcim Mexico.
