Holcim ViroDecs™ Aggregates

Holcim is a leading supplier of construction materials in Australia, originally serving the industry under the well-known Ready mix and Humes brands dating back to 1901. Today Holcim continues to supply essential construction materials including aggregates, sand, ready-mix concrete, engineered precast concrete and prestressed concrete solutions to a range of customers and projects throughout Australia.

The Holcim  ViroDecs™ Aggregates initiative for Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) constitutes a major investment in comprehensively analysing and communicating to customers the embodied environmental impacts of Holcim’s products.
Data collected from across Holcim’s Australian operations, including 41 quarries, was fed into an ISO14044-compliant Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) model by specialist practitioners to generate an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) to ISO 14025 and EN 15804, which have been independently reviewed by an approved, third-party verifier.

The development of a raw aggregates EPD is a “missing” piece to having all key infrastructure and building materials represented by an EPD in Australia. Its publication will support our customers to drive improved sustainable procurement and materials selection.
