Carbon and energy

Our vision:

To be recognised as a leading force in the delivery of a low carbon environment


Maximise energy and carbon efficiencies; deliver products with lower embodied carbon; support and meet national and European carbon reduction targets

Action plan:

Maintain ISO 50001 certification and improve energy efficiency and carbon reduction of our production plants and offices; increase the use of renewable energy and waste as fuel; reduce CO2 emissions from transport by extending our in-house fleet to gain greater control and optimise distribution.

2020 target:

Reduce carbon emissions by 10 per cent and energy use by five per cent per tonne of product based on 2010 baseline; 35 per cent use of biofuel in cement by 2020; reduce transport emissions by five per cent per tonne based on 2010 baseline.
