Construction company BAM Construct UK has revealed it is continuing to reduce its carbon footprint.
The firm has been involved in several projects recently, including the Royal Albert Memorial Museum and the new School of Business for the University of Exeter.
Last year saw a significant reduction in total emissions, which were down 11% compared to the previous year.
The firm claims that despite increasing turnover, less fuel and electricity is being used on its sites.
Jesse Putzel, BAM’s climate change manager, said: “Our CO2 emissions reduced last year by approximately 2,243 t. Put another way, this is enough CO2 to fill 440 hot air balloons or the whole of Wembley stadium with some to spare.
“Normalising our emissions against turnover shows we’ve reduced our emissions intensity - the amount of CO2 we emit per million pounds of work - by 13%. This is great news and is testament to the hard work everyone has put in to reducing energy use.”
The company has introduced remote monitoring of energy, providing an energy management advice service to sites as well as reducing the use of generators.
