Portland Cement and Portland Cement Blend


Cement (Portland Cement and Portland Cement Blend) undoubtedly has a significant impact on the environment; but it’s a necessary product with as yet, no viable alternative.

However, there are many ways to minimise harm, including but not limited to:

  • Increasing the use of Supplementary Cementitious Materials (SCMs) to significantly lower CO2 emissions
  • Optimising energy efficiency and water management in production
  • Responsible sourcing of raw materials

Eco Choice Aotearoa’s standard for cement represents current best practice, and requires applicants to work toward continuous improvement and sustainable innovation.

This standard for Portland Cement and Portland Cement Blend is recognised by the Australian and New Zealand Green Building Councils.
