Lafarge has ranked 7th in the UK’s first ever league table of ’green’ organisations.

The roll, featuring more than 2,000 businesses, agencies, hospitals and government units, aims to show what progress is being made to cut carbon.

Published by the Environment Agency, from information supplied to its CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme, the table is expected to act as a baseline for future years which will also show overall CO2 emissions.

Lafarge Aggregates & Concrete UK, (LACUK) is the highest listed of the large building materials suppliers operating multiple sites across the UK.
Miles Dobson, LACUK head of manufacturing, said:

"We are absolutely delighted to have ranked so highly on this very first league table of the Carbon Reduction Commitment scheme.

"For Lafarge to be the top ranked multi-site, national construction materials supplier makes us all feel very proud and is a testament of our drive to constantly improve our sustainability.

"Lafarge is totally committed to operating in the most environmentally sound way possible. We seek to minimise our impact on the environment in all ways, from operations at our 150 plus sites to our transport systems and our innovative product lines.
