Saint-Gobain PAM UK has joined other major industry leaders and government ministers to sign up to the Infrastructure Carbon Review (ICR). The aim of the joint initiative is to reduce carbon in infrastructure, which could save as much as 24 million tonnes of carbon and £1.46 billion a year in the UK by 2050.
Infrastructure and related industries account for around half of the UK’s current carbon emissions and the review outlines the measures that government, clients and suppliers can take in order to reduce this.
As an ICR signatory, Saint-Gobain PAM UK has committed to reduce its carbon emissions by half by 2025, alongside a stated aim of engaging with its employees, suppliers and customers to inspire a one future planet.
Paul Minchin, Managing Director of Saint-Gobain PAM UK, said: “We have a strategic statement objective to be perceived by our customers as a leading sustainable supplier, working to create a responsible corporate future. It is initiatives like this that enable us, and other industry leaders, to make that impact and change.
“Collaborative working also has a vital role to play in terms of being able to deliver these targets. Not only are we committed here at Saint-Gobain PAM to reduce our carbon footprint, we’re working with our suppliers and customers to embed a ‘whole-life’ thinking behind projects to help them design and build more sustainable and low-carbon infrastructure.”
