    Aggregate Industries achieves prestigious energy management certification

    Leading construction
    and infrastructure player Aggregate Industries has achieved certification from
    BSI to ISO 50001 Energy Management
    Systems
    , after demonstrating its company-wide commitment to energy
    efficiency.

    This follows and
    expands upon the successful certification of its cement business, Lafarge
    Cement, in 2018.

    The latest version of the standard offers organisations guidance on how
    to manage energy consumption and reduce usage. As part of Aggregate Industries
    commitment to this, it set up a dedicated energy taskforce, overseen by the
    company’s executive committee, which has specific monitoring and performance
    targets.

    Guy Edwards, Chief
    Executive Officer at Aggregate Industries UK, said: “Receiving formal
    recognition of our effective energy governance is a great achievement for our
    entire company, as it further demonstrates our pledge to minimise outputs
    across all operations, which will in turn lower our CO2 emissions.

    “Sustainability
    remains at the heart of what we do and our aim is to make a positive
    contribution to the built environment now and for future generations. In order
    to do this, we will continue to maximise our energy efficiencies, as well as
    offer a wide choice of sustainable products and services designed to help our
    customers lower CO2 emissions released over the whole life-cycle of
    a project.”

    Carla Whyte, Key Accounts Proposition Manager EMEA at BSI,
    said: “Aggregate Industries has demonstrated its commitment to sustainability
    and the environmental benefits certification to the Energy Management standard
    brings. Additional business benefits include; compliance with legislation and a
    reduction in cost, waste and risk. The team should be delighted that this
    certification has been achieved.”
