GREENER CONSTRUCTION STARTS WITH ECOPact
Concrete is the second most widely used material worldwide, after water. The environmental impact of concrete is not purely due to the per kg carbon produced when compared to other construction materials, it’s due to the sheer volume produced.
Cement, a key ingredient of concrete, equates to 90% of its carbon footprint. Originally this was reliant on using fossil fuels during the manufacturing process. However, did you know this process produces less than 1.5% of UK carbon emissions against an average of 7% worldwide?
As the industry moves away from fossil fuels, we’re actively seeking greener solutions to help decarbonise our environment and achieve the net zero target.
ECOPact is the start, actively reducing CO2 in your build, no matter what the project.
All alongside maximising alternative fuels throughout the production process within both our cement plants. And investing in future technology
to increase our thermal substitution rate at our plants.
