Keeping things clean

We’re hot on making sure we’re keeping our environment free from harm. So we’ve challenged our partners to use green materials when working with us, set up an aggregate recycling centre, and invested in two core & vac rigs that reduce the impact on the environment.

We have also made our vehicle fleet greener by introducing a range of gas powered vehicles and cleaner engines, and we’re trialling electric vehicles too.

Green energy for a clean future

With the UK tasked with reaching an 80% carbon reduction target by 2050, there’s an urgent need to develop affordable, low carbon energy solutions. From exploring alternative forms of gas such as hydrogen, to breaking down barriers between different energy systems, we’re working with a wide range of partners to help deliver a sustainable energy future.

Let's talk

Are we measuring up to your expectations? Should we approach land clean up following our works? How can we improve air quality in the region? What should the next chapter for hydrogen look like? Should we influence government policy on heat and shape national and international thinking?
