Building a Low Carbon Future with Ecrete™ - Sustainable Concrete Solutions for New Zealand 

As we move towards a brighter and more sustainable future for Aotearoa New Zealand, it's crucial to consider every aspect of our building practices. At Allied Concrete, we are taking significant steps every day to reduce our carbon footprint and create a better environment for future generations. Introducing Ecrete™ - our revolutionary concrete mix designed to dramatically reduce carbon impact while maintaining exceptional strength and durability. With its cutting-edge formula and environmentally friendly properties, Ecrete™ leads the way in sustainable building practices for New Zealand. 


Innovative Low Carbon Concrete:

Ecrete™ is a revolutionary concrete mix engineered to reduce carbon impact without compromising on strength and durability. Our cutting-edge formula incorporates various methods, including the use of supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs), lower carbon cement made in New Zealand, sustainable aggregate sourcing, and other initiatives. These methods are location-dependent and may change the features and benefits of Ecrete™ depending on the mix design you are getting. 

Reduced CO₂ Emissions:

Ecrete™ reduces CO₂ by 10-50%*, contributing significantly to your project's sustainability goals. For even greater carbon reduction, opt for Ecrete™ Plus, a bespoke carbon-reduced mix made by our technical team to meet your specific requirements. Ecrete™ Plus can reduce CO₂ beyond 50% and is designed to maintain the strength, flowability, and finishing standard you need.
