Our Integrated Management System includes our Environmental Management System and is certified to the ISO14001 standard. Safeguarding the environment as we carry out our work is important to us and we continually strive to reduce our carbon footprint by carrying out our work efficiently and effectively.
In 2010 we set-up Gallagher Recycling Services (GRS) to help us to increase our recycling and reduce our carbon footprint. GRS produces an approved Appendix 9 Type 1 sub-base equivalent recycled and stabilised aggregate. We supply our product to clients and industry partners as well as using it ourselves to dramatically reduce our impact on the environment.
In November 2014, GRS won the National Joint Utilities Group (NJUG) award for Sustainable Methods and Materials having opened a new recycling facility in Sheffield. We worked with our clients and industry partners in Sheffield to bring recycled aggregate to an area that previously had no supply. This not only significantly reduces the amount of waste to landfill but also makes Sheffield a safer place by removing over 8,000 lorry movements in the city each year.
