Tackling climate change is the biggest challenge facing our world today. Farrans is fully committed to achieving net carbon zero, reducing our impact on our natural environment and delivering greener facilities designed for the future.
As part of CRH, we are playing our part in the trajectory towards achieving carbon neutrality along the cement and concrete value chain by 2050. We are taking action by transitioning to low carbon energy technologies, minimising our use of resources, reducing the carbon footprint of our products and innovating for carbon efficiency.
We are making steady progress towards becoming a Net Zero business by 2040.
We have developed an environmental management system, in accordance with the requirements of the International Environmental Management Standard ISO 14001 through which we set, review and implement environmental targets.
In 2020, CRH signed up to Business for Nature’s Call to Action, joining our peers in advocating that nature is indeed everyone’s business. Through collaboration efforts with stakeholders, such as the Wildlife Habitat Council, we are actively engaging in measures to promote biodiversity.
We have committed to:
- Reduce scope 1 and scope 2 Green House Gas Emissions by 50% by 2030.
- Measure and reduce scope 3 Green House Gas Emissions.
- Report company-wide Green House Gas emissions on an annual basis.
The Business in the Community Environmental Benchmarking Survey positions organisations against sector peers and leading organisations based on environmental management and performance in key areas, as well as the extent to which environmental business practices have been embedded within corporate strategies.
We are proud to have achieved Platinum level, the highest level of achievement.
