Lafarge Canada Plant Fully Converts to ECOPlanet

Lafarge Canada, a member of Holcim Group, converted production at its Richmond cement plant to ECOPlanet – Holcim’s brand of low-carbon cement, which offers a minimum 30% reduction in CO2 emissions per tonne in comparison to ordinary portland cement.

“This is a proud moment for our organization,” said Brad Kohl, president and CEO of Lafarge Canada (West). “This conversion in Lafarge’s Western Canada division highlights our strong commitment to accelerating green growth. As leaders in sustainable building solutions, we take pride in having a positive impact on building solutions across its lifecycle without compromising the quality and long-term durability of our products.”

This accomplishment cements the company’s decarbonization strategy and makes it the first cement plant within the Holcim Group to qualify 100% of its cement production as ECOPlanet.

The ECOPlanet range of low-carbon cement is designed to meet the most stringent performance specifications while upholding the highest standards of sustainability. With compliance with all industry standards, the cement is suitable for various applications regardless of performance requirements.
