About

Boral is the largest integrated construction materials company in Australia, with a leading position underpinned by strategically located quarry reserves and an extended network of operating sites. We also manufacture and supply a range of building products.

Boral Concrete has over 230 premix concrete plants around Australia producing a wide range of concrete mixes in metropolitan and country areas.
Boral Concrete supplies premix concrete to all segments of the construction industry including civil infrastructure, commercial, industrial and residential construction.

For this EPD Boral has chosen a range of premix concrete products including its ENVISIA, lower carbon high performance concrete. This has been complimented by more conventional mixes which are also captured in the EPD.

Sustainability Outcomes

Boral have developed a lower carbon concrete range that does not compromise the standard product performance such as early strength and shrinkage. These products are more sustainable and comply with the Australian Standards and the National Construction Code (NCC) and Building Code of Australia (BCA).

Boral also manufacture Envirocrete as a low carbon concrete to meet sustainability rating tool requirements which can contain up to 70% Supplementary Cementitious Materials (SCM) content.

Boral Concrete can assist to tailor concrete mix designs to achieve sustainability and environmental requirements.

From September 2020, an ISO 14025 and EN 15804 compliant EPD for Boral’s ready-mix (Sydney NSW), conventional concrete which also features the low carbon ENVISIA® concrete, will be registered under the Australasian EPD Programme. The EPD can be used to assist projects with Level 1 (and above) for the Mat-2 (v1.2) and Rso-7 (v2.0) credits.

The selection of products used in this EPD suit all typical concrete applications varying from high durability in marine and sulphate resistant exposure conditions through to low risk civil applications. It is particularly suited to low shrinkage and high early strength applications, where low carbon footprint is also required.
