Firth EcoMix® concrete is lower in carbon because it’s made with Golden Bay EcoSure®, NZ’s lowest carbon general purpose (GP) cement. EcoMix®+ is designed with SCMs (supplementary cementitious materials) to further reduce the level of embodied carbon (EC) in the concrete mix.
As a part of the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE)’s Building for Climate Change programme, reporting on embodied carbon for new buildings is set to become mandatory in 2025. So, you’ll need to declare your Carbon Number (Carbon Reduction Target or Global Warming Potential, also known as GWP) for every project.
And that’s where we can help - with your Carbon Number our Firth experts will understand your sustainability goal and supply the right EcoMix® low carbon concrete that’ll deliver to your target, easy.
*Reduction in embodied carbon dependent on mix design and plant location and is compared to 2020 EC Baseline (ISC) for ready-mix concrete provided by the Infrastructure Sustainability Council from the Materials Calculator NZ 2.0
