It’s great to see that one of the leading manufacturers of concrete products in the UK adopts sustainable and responsible sourcing practices. These are considering the environmental impact of raw materials and utilizing recycled or locally sourced materials.
Waste management practices such as recycling, waste reduction, and responsible disposal are essential for AG to minimise environmental impact. Moreover, AG prioritises compliance with environmental regulations and standards, including monitoring emissions, managing water usage responsibly, and addressing potential environmental risks.
Aaron Marshall, RPM Program Engagement Director (pictured with Cathy Maguire HSEQ Manager, Stephen Acheson CEO and John Cassidy Shift Team Leader at their Toomebridge office) welcomed AG to the Program and said “It’s a pleasure to have AG Paving & Building Products one of the UK the leading manufacturer of concrete products becoming an Engaged member of the Program.
