  • US sustainable building materials leader takes home win at largest construction trade show in North America

CHICAGO, March 17, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Holcim US and ECOPact low-carbon concrete were awarded the Contractor’s Choice of the inaugural Next Level Awards Program. Voted on by conference attendees and industry peers, 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.

We’re extremely proud to have ECOPact named the inaugural winner of the Next Level Awards Program, particularly as this recognition comes from our industry peers,” said Toufic Tabbara, Region Head, North America at Holcim. “ECOPact, our low-carbon concrete, represents an important tool in our strategy to drive more sustainable and innovative building practices across the industry. It’s important that we offer our customers quality, low-carbon building solutions that enable them to build a sustainable future for all.”

ECOPact provides the global construction industry with a versatile solution to the carbon challenge, offering up to 90% lower CO2 emissions compared with standard concrete mix designs. Projects using ECOPact low-carbon concrete are the corner stones of the future and Holcim is fortunate to have the opportunity to partner with leading influential businesses and companies to design innovative mixes that meets their needs and helps build a sustainable future.

“Congratulations to Holcim and ECOPact as the winner of the inaugural Next Level Awards – Contractors’ Choice,” said Dana Wuesthoff, show director of CONEXPO-CON/AGG. “This award was voted on by their peers in the industry and is a testament to the Holcim team’s dedication, creativity, and willingness to push the boundaries of what’s possible.
