Companies sign MoU on decarbonization strategy in drive to achieve net-zero emissions
FM Conway have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Shell that will see both parties develop a collaborative decarbonization strategy towards achieving net-zero emissions.
The agreement ensures that both parties will work together to achieve FM Conway’s transition to carbon net zero and will focus on the following areas of business:
- Energy management
- Plant and tools
- Sustainable bitumen and asphalt technology
- Carbon offsets
- Training and development.
The joint strategy will explore options such as renewable energy solutions and next generation fuels, as well as exploring a collaborative approach for both FM Conway and Shell’s electric vehicle (EV) charging solutions, SureCharge and Shell Recharge respectively.
FM Conway’s Net Zero Strategy, launched in November 2021, sets out the company’s roadmap for becoming a net-zero carbon business by 2045 and marks a commitment to combatting the growing climate change agenda.
Now, the company’s new partnership will aim to further build upon this by utilizing Shell’s knowledge and expertise to accelerate the decarbonization process.
Joanne Conway (pictured seated), FM Conway Group chair, said: ‘As a pioneer of sustainable construction activities, FM Conway recognize the importance of achieving net zero for both our business and the wider industry so that we can ultimately protect our planet’s resources.
‘A key element of our Net Zero Strategy focuses on collaborating with our clients and partners to share best practice and I am delighted that this agreement with Shell means that we can take the next step towards a net-zero future.’
Ana Alvernhe (standing left of photo), general manager of Shell Construction & Road, said: ‘We’re delighted to partner with FM Conway and support them in their net-zero journey. This collaboration is critical to the sector, which is amongst the hardest to decarbonize, and we’re committed to working together to identify the low- and zero-carbon solutions available right now to make a difference, and in the longer term deliver offers that are in development.’
