The technologies and the building materials that we bring into top form for this purpose are the sustainable basis for a future-oriented infrastructure. Kirchdorfer Concrete Solutions has set itself the goal of producing more climate-friendly concrete by 2030. In order to be able to achieve the defined sustainability target of Concrete30 (concrete to the power of 30), the increase in recycling of aggregates by 30% and the saving of 30% in binding agents and transport by 2030, a comprehensive approach to climate-neutral and energy-efficient business is required.

Mag. Michael Wardian

How does precast concrete construction contribute to the reduction of gas emissions?

The added value is based on the calculation of a detailed carbon footprint for defined product groups according to ecological criteria. Based on this calculation, our products will contain a higher proportion of recyclable material in the future, following our internal sustainability goal. We will produce using low-carbon concrete and reduce thus carbon emissions within all of our logistics operations. Furthermore, we are developing multifunctional products - such as our "noise protection wall for power plants". Resource conservation, energy efficiency and the production of renewable energy contribute to the ecological optimization of our production processes. The KIRCHDORFER GROUP has been fully aware of its corporate social responsibility since its foundation. For example, by setting ambitious goals and introducing a series of product innovations, KIRCHDORFER CONRECTE SOLUTIONS is aligning its infrastructure portfolio with sustainability and safety. We are looking for unusual and new approaches at regular innovation board meetings by focusing on specific research themes as:

for example, resource conservation (concrete 30 to the power of 3)

| 30% CO2 Reduction in cement

| 30% CO2 Reduction in transport

| 30% recycling materials

circular economy (upcycling of roadway slabs)

| optimization of concrete mixes (CD Laboratory, geopolymer concrete, ...)

| solutions HPFC (High Performance Fibre Concrete)


Kirchdorfer Group is a privately owned international construction materials group based in Kirchdorf, Upper Austria, which operates in the Cement, Construction Minerals (stone, sand, gravel, ready-mix concrete), Concrete Solutions and Road & Traffic divisions.
