Last year, Roger Bullivant launched its grey to green initiative with the National Forest. For every metre of precast concrete pile manufactured the company donates money to the national forest to plant more trees. To date, over 1000 trees have been planted as a result, offsetting 1,000 t CO2 of the company’s carbon footprint.
Cliff Wren, Managing Director at Roger Bullivant said: “The environmental action plan focuses on two main components; environmental responsibility and social responsibility.
“It aligns with our strategic plan and culture of Performance Excellence, by introducing a consistent approach to sustainability across the Group.
“Our investment in electric vehicles and solar panels signals our commitment to ensure we are fulfilling our promise to reducing carbon emissions over the next decade. The next steps will involve a second phase implementation, introducing the business with more innovation solutions to further reduce fuel consumption and to source low carbon concrete.
“The Environmental Action Plan brings real benefits to our people and our businesses while making the fundamental changes necessary to protect our planet.”
