Carbon and energy

Our commitment and goals

By 2016 we will reduce process carbon emissions by 20% on 2013 levels in absolute terms.

In 2013 our total process carbon emissions were 248,682 tonnes CO2e

In 2015 our total process emissions increased to 282,315 tonnes CO2e as a result of increased production.
A refocused energy programme is being implemented to mitigate this through energy efficiency and renewable energy projects.

Climate Change

We have long recognised the consequences of CO2 emissions and how both the manufacture of our products and their use in the built environment contribute to climate change, and there is a real focus and drive to minimise the environmental impact of all we do.

For many years we have had our own CO2 reduction targets driven by a number of factors:

  • Security of our energy supply, reducing the risk and exposure to unsustainable fossil fuels.
  • Reducing the embodied CO2 impact of our products.
  • Sites operating efficiently cost less to operate, and suffer fewer breakdowns.
  • Legislation including Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRCEES), European Union Emissions Trading Scheme (EUETS) and the forthcoming Energy Saving Opportunities Scheme (ESOS).
  • Reducing cost of production of our products.
