NG Bailey delivers on its sustainability objectives

Published:  03 October, 2013

NG Bailey’s Target 4-year sustainability programme, Target 2012, has seen the company’s CO2 emissions reduced by 32% and water usage across its estate cut by 30%. In addition, 72% of waste was recycled and over £1 million-worth of materials from sites recovered and reused.

The company has now launched a new 5-year sustainability strategy, One Approach, which sets out commitments across six areas of focus (safety, customers, environment, people, supply chain and community) to achieve by 2018.

Sustainability director Cal Bailey said, ‘We have saved ourselves, our immediate customers and end clients both time and money — showing how cutting carbon, waste and water make economic as well as environmental sense.

‘Despite the undoubted success of our Target 2012 programme, it would be wrong to call us a sustainable business. There is much more we can, and will, do before we become truly sustainable.’

The results of the Target 2012 programme are available in a report from the web site below.
