Construction News Image
AG, a paving and building products manufacturer, was recognised for its sustainability strides as it was crowned Sustainable Manufacturing Business of the Year at the 2024 Business Eye Sustainability Awards.

The award recognises manufacturers that prioritise sustainability throughout their operations. AG's win underscores the success of the company's robust Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy.

With manufacturing sites in Fivemiletown, Toome, and Carryduff, AG, as part of its Climate Action Pledge has committed to reducing its absolute Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by at least 30 per cent, as well as lowering its Scope 3 emissions by 2030, regardless of business growth.

Having exceeded its science-based targets to date, AG has consistently invested in sustainable technologies, processes and materials to minimise its environmental impact, from utilising aggregates sourced from its Fivemiletown quarry to manufacturing with 100 per cent renewable energy.

Mark McCardle, COO, said: "We are honoured to be crowned Sustainable Manufacturing Business of the Year. This recognition is a testament to our team's relentless efforts to integrate sustainability into every aspect of our operations. At AG, we believe that sustainability is not just a choice but a responsibility, and we remain committed to minimising our environmental footprint while delivering high-quality products to our customers."

Moreover, AG's commitment to sustainability secured it Platinum Status in the 2023 Northern Ireland Environmental Benchmarking Survey. This dedication has also resulted in its nomination for Outstanding Commitment to ESG (Environmental, Social & Governance) at the Business Telegraph Awards.

In recognition of its sustainability efforts, the specialist building products business is among the first to achieve recertification to the latest version of the BES 6001 Standard at its Toome location for its flag products.

AG already has one of the lowest carbon footprints in the industry and these accomplishments showcase its commitment to reducing the environmental impact of its operations to an absolute minimum.
