General Purpose Portland Cement (Ultracem)

Holcim (New Zealand) Ltd is a leading supplier of cement, aggregates and ready-mix concrete in Aotearoa New Zealand. Its involvement in the New Zealand building industry dates back to 1888. Holcim New Zealand is part of the regional Holcim Australia/New Zealand business and the global LafargeHolcim Group; the world’s leading supplier of cement, aggregates and construction-related services represented in 90 countries on all continents. In 2016 Holcim NZ Ltd transitioned from a manufacturing cement model to an import model, sourcing bulk shipments of GP cement from Mitsubishi Materials Corporation in Japan.

This EPD presents a ‘cradle-to-gate’ assessment of the environmental impacts of both bulk and bagged “Ultracem” general purpose cement.  It covers from raw material extraction in Japan right the way through cement production, transportation to the import terminals in New Zealand and ends with regional depot operations including bagging of cement where this occurs.

The life cycle assessment provides quantitative, objective and verified information, which Holcim NZ Ltd is able to utilize to continuously improve their products and processes.
