“Our promise from the very start was to borrow the land and extract the mineral, restoring the landscape to a condition better than it was when we started.”

Pat Gallagher

Lowering our carbon footprint

We have embarked on our mission to push our materials supply and processing operations towards an operationally carbon neutral position in support of NetZero 2050 and the UK’s COP26 commitments.

Quarry Electrification

We have invested £3m to lower the carbon footprint of our two quarry facilities in Kent by switching from gas oil power to electric power.

Renewable Energy Procurement

We purchase our power supplies from a 100% renewable source energy provider to further decarbonise our operations and products.

Lowering Energy Use

We have made changes to our offices, facility buildings, and our temporary site accommodation buildings to minimise their power consumption by utilising smart lighting and heating solutions and efficient hybrid generators on our contracts where permanent power connections are not available.

Product Innovation

Kent spends approximately £9m annually in the removal of Hazardous Waste from Energy from Waste Plants, transporting it to a suitable landfill site.

Gallagher have invested £5m in developing the technology to take this waste, combine it with hassock fines produced at our quarries and recycle it into a viable maufactured aggregate product. Saving Kent money and reducing carbon emissions created through landfill.

The product was certified by the Environment Agency in 2022.

Committed to our future

Gallagher Aggregates and Gallagher Ltd have been certified as Carbon Reduced Organisations by the Carbon Footprint Standard, as having been assessed for our emissions, demonstrating emission reductions, and are recognised as following international methodologies.

In recognition of our NetZero initiatives and their outcome, we have been chosen as ConstructZero Business Champions by the Construction Leadership Council. At the Construction News Awards 2023, Gallagher Aggregates became a finalist of the Carbon Reduction Champion Category and Gallagher Group won the NetZero Trailblazer Award. Gallagher Aggregates also won the Sustainability & Decarbonisation Business of the Year Award at the Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce Annual Business Awards 2023. This demonstrates our commitment to achieving our ambitions of becoming NetZero by 2050.
