Our equipment and machinery is run by electricity so there are significant cost and environmental benefits for us to find new ways to reduce our energy consumption.
There are many strategies we use to improve our energy efficiency. These include developing and implementing new technology to make our large yard equipment more efficient, encouraging a reduction to personal employee usage (e.g turning off internal office lights when not in use) and implementing new lighting such as LED globes around our site.
Between 2003 and 2013 we have made a 10.7 per cent improvement to electricity efficiency across the business. This is an equivalent saving of approximately 3,400 average Newcastle households and 15,853 tonnes of carbon dioxide.
