THE World Cement Association (WCA) announced today that Republic of Ireland building products manufacturers Mannok have joined the global network as a corporate member.
Mannok have made a commitment to reduce their carbon emissions by 33% by 2030 and achieve net zero emissions by 2050, with a focus on scope 3 emissions and responsible procurement, whilst ensuring full transparency on the carbon footprint of their products through voluntary disclosure.
‘We are especially pleased to be welcoming Mannok to our membership. With our shared goal of decarbonization and net zero, we are excited to draw on their expertise in this area to share best practices amongst our members,’ said Ian Riley, chief executive officer of the WCA.
‘We look forward to working together to explore and promote sustainable business practices as they continue to provide pioneering, cost-effective construction solutions.’
Through technical innovations, Mannok ensure that sustainability is fundamental across each stage of production, including waste reduction, responsible sourcing, recycling and energy usage.
The company has invested heavily in its cement production facility to allow the use of solid recovered fuel (SRF), significantly reducing carbon emissions and providing an alternative to landfill waste.
‘We are delighted to be collaborating with the WCA to support our focus on sustainability within every aspect of our business,’ said Mannok chief executive officer Liam McCaffrey (pictured).
‘Our innovative spirit has driven our pursuit of environmental excellence to showcase best practices in manufacturing for the UK, Ireland, and beyond, which we look forward to sharing with the WCA and its members.’
