Aggregate Industries launch Your Carbon Report
Industry’s first carbon reporting tool offers customers accurate carbon data by product or project
AGGREGATE Industries have launched Your Carbon Report, believed to be the construction industry’s first fully customizable carbon reporting tool that provides the carbon footprint of the company’s products used in building and infrastructure projects.
The new tool produces a report using data from across Aggregate Industries’ business areas to provide a comprehensive and accurate cradle-to-site assessment that looks at the whole manufacturing process, from raw material extraction to transportation.
The report can be generated quickly, from request to supply, and allows customers the flexibility to interrogate the data to identify where future carbon savings can be made.
To give assurance to customers that the solution includes all necessary material flows and is in line with industry best practice, all data in the carbon reporting tool is independently audited by Circular Ecology.
Kirstin McCarthy, sustainability director at Aggregate Industries, commented: ‘As a business, we are committed to driving carbon reduction across our operations while also collaborating and developing innovative low-carbon solutions to help contribute to a more sustainable construction industry.
‘Our research shows us that low carbon is the most important area of sustainability for our customers. We’re seeing an increasing number of whole-year data requests to set a baseline to reduce CO2. To date, this has always been done manually using various product carbon footprinting tools and generic databases.
‘In response, we wanted to develop an automated system, increase accuracy, and meet the growing demand, while also providing customers with an audit trail for complete transparency. Our new tool, Your Carbon Report, offers exactly this – and we believe it is an industry first.
‘With the launch of Your Carbon Report, customers can now see the carbon of our products used in their project, but we can also collaborate to help them identify further opportunities to lower their carbon footprint in the future.’
Aggregate Industries’ new carbon reporting tool is available across the company’s ready-mixed concrete, concrete products, asphalt, aggregates, and bagged cement products.
