We’re pioneering techniques such as surfacing one area of a county per year to decrease movements of vehicles. Telematics has played an important role in not only efficient routing but also monitoring driver behaviour. It’s enabled us to train drivers to become more conscious of fuel efficiency, which has seen big results in fuel economy, emissions reduction and air quality.
While as a business we rely on fossil fuels, we’ve invested in new, greener machines that save carbon and costs and are always looking to make carbon savings elsewhere to offset this. More investment has been made in our recycling sector too, with additional injection on the surfacing side to reuse materials that would normally have to be brought in from quarries.
