Transitioning to support you with our Net Zero Materials
Tarmac is committed to helping customers drive decarbonisation across UK construction and infrastructure projects. Early engagement and collaboration are vital. We work in partnership with contractors and clients to unlock carbon savings by making informed material choices and to understand the product carbon footprints when making low carbon design decisions.
We recognise net zero is a collaborative commitment and are open to exploring opportunities to trial, develop, and deliver the progress demanded by this global opportunity.
To do this we are:
Educating and assisting our top suppliers with calculating their scope 1,2 and 3 emissions. Developing concepts from the innovation challenge.
Delivering net zero logistics by elevating push and pull factors.
Engaging on the development of UK industry standards to include lower carbon cements and alternative binders, enabling formal documentation of their suitability and environmental performance.
Playing an active part in low carbon industrial clusters for the Northwest, South Wales and Scotland.
