How Concrete Got Greener
Concrete is arguably the most versatile building materials on earth. Its strength and performance are unmatched in countless applications. Though this incredible building material has ushered in new eras of progress and promise since its inception, its
future hinges on one important question: can we lower the carbon footprint of concrete?
The answer is a resounding, “Yes.”
EvoBuildTM low carbon concrete was specifically designed to do just that, utilizing multiple carbon reduction levers to help customers not only meet their sustainability targets, but do what concrete has always done—exceed what was previously thought possible. It is the result of decades of research, development and testing—of challenging ourselves as a company to evolve.

Our Sustainability Story: More Than A Promise
Words Form a Promise, but Actions Tell the Story.
As our world faces the reality of climate change, we are called to confront this challenge with real solutions. Unlike current trends that label a product or process as ecofriendly without supporting that claim, these solutions must be grounded in evidence, and action. They must have a measurable and sizable impact in the advance toward carbon neutrality.
As leaders in our industry, we at Heidelberg Materials have the resources and expertise to tackle this challenge. Utilizing the unique insights and collaborative expertise of our people, with a global reach across more than 50 countries, we draw from scientifically-proven data to proactively create solutions and implement sustainable practices.
Every area of our operations, from raw materials to product development, from transport to end use—and ultimately reuse—continues evolving to drive our progress.
Embodied Carbon Versus Operational Carbon
How the carbon footprint of a building material is calculated...
Embodied carbons are emissions from manufacturing, transporting and installing building materials—as well as their end-of-life state and reuse. This is different from operational carbon, which are related to the energy efficiency of a structure during its use and have primarily been the focus of builders and policymakers in decades past. This shift to a focus on embodied carbons has created new opportunities for carbon footprint reduction.
While the thermal mass of concrete can be used to lower the operational emissions of a structure, EvoBuildTMis designed to address the entire life cycle of concrete in order lower embodied emissions.
As part of the circular economy, concrete can be recycled at the end of its life and reintroduced into the lifecycle of new products.
