Our choice, our promise
To better understand the environmental impacts of the building materials we produce, both from an embodied and a whole life cycle aspect, we are developing our lifecycle assessment (LCA) capability at Aggregate Industries.
This work forms part of a wider sustainability assessment methodology that looks at the social, environmental and economic aspects of the production, use and ultimate end of life of our products.
Completed in 2015, this assessment allows us to focus on the development of building materials with particular sustainable attributes for those customers who share our increasing aspirations for sustainable construction.
We recognise the increasing awareness of Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) and the emerging standards that will influence Life Cycle Assessments (LCA) of construction products.
We are actively involved in discussions relating to such issues and are working with a number of partners to deliver EPD to the market.
