Holcim’s commitment presented at ISCA conference

Holcim’s commitment to developing Australia’s first Environmental Product Declarations for readymix concete was presented at the ISCA Conference 2018 Innovation Panel.

“The information from Holcim’s ViroDecs™ can be used by a range of our customers and their associates, from architects, engineers, developers and builders, to drive reductions in the embodied environmental impact of buildings and infrastructure at the design and specification stage,” says National Approvals & Sustainable Development Manager Cyril Giraud.

“To build infrastructure and buildings that have a lower environmental impact requires smarter design, informed by accurate and relevant environmental data. Holcim’s ViroDecs™ set a very clear commitment to providing accurate and transparent environmental data for our customers and a framework for continued improvement on Holcim’s part,” says Cyril.
