Assessing sustainable and cost-efficient solutions for road construction

Environmental impact consideration at an early stage of design will be essential to achieve the green transition in public infrastructures! According to the European Commission’s New Circular Economy Action Plan, up to 80% of a products’ environmental impacts are determined at the design phase. This is particularly relevant for road construction.

Based on LafargeHolcim’s material knowledge and the latest artificial intelligence technologies, ORIS enables to assess sustainable and cost-efficient solutions for road construction, from the early stage of design. Such assessment allows to reduce by up to 50% the climate impact of a road and by up to 80% the use of primary materials
