Lafarge Tarmac UK signs up to the Infrastructure Carbon Review

The UK’s Lafarge Tarmac has become the first company from its industry to sign the Infrastructure Carbon Review.

This is a joint initiative between industry and the government that aims to lower carbon emissions from UK infrastructure projects by 24 million tonnes by 2050. The review outlines the measures that government, clients and suppliers can take in order to reduce carbon emissions during the construction and operation of infrastructure assets.

Lafarge Tarmac made the commitment at the Infrastructure Carbon Review One Year On Conference, which was hosted by the Green Construction Board and the Department for Business Innovation and Skills.

As an Infrastructure Carbon Review signatory, Lafarge Tarmac has made the following commitments:

  • To design CO2 out of its products and processes.
  • To provide product carbon footprints for all products from all production facilities.
  • To provide information and tools to help customers adopt lower carbon solutions.

“We are very pleased to demonstrate our commitment to lowering carbon emissions by signing up to the ICR,” said Dr Martyn Kenny, Sustainability Director at Lafarge Tarmac.

“Collaborative working has a vital role to play in delivering industry targets and, as well as reducing the carbon footprint of our own products, we are engaging early with customers to embed whole-life thinking and help them design and build more sustainable, low carbon buildings and infrastructure.”
