ECOncrete aims to bridge development and sustainability in coastal and marine environments through environmentally sensitive concrete technologies that revolutionize the concrete and concrete and coastal construction industries. We support the UN Global Compact vision and conform with their principles.
It is more cost-effective to take early action to ensure that environmental damage does not occur, and it is more effective to strive for on-site mitigation than seek indirect mitigation tools. Our environmentally sensitive concrete solutions offer direct mitigation value as an integral part of the project, providing significant long-term benefits such as enhancing biological diversity and growth of rich flora and fauna. By this we comply with Principle 7: Businesses should support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges;
Principle 8: undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility is ECOncrete’s everyday business. ECOncrete®’s bio-enhancing concrete products have a reduced carbon footprint compared to Standard Portland cement-based concrete, due to a combination of proprietary admix integrating by-products and recycled materials.
Lastly, Principle 9: encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies. By changing the input materials or changing the product design or components a huge impact can be done. ECOncrete’s technology is based on three core elements: bio-enhancing concrete compositions, complex surface textures, and science-based designs, which work in synergy to decrease the ecological footprint of concrete infrastructure while enhancing their strength and durability.
We hope that more and more companies follow us and the United Global Compact to make this world a better and environmentally friendly place.
