UK construction and civil engineering firm, Costain, has announced that it cut emissions by 14% in 2016 – almost triple its 5% target.

The company has made a series of sustainable changes across its business, such as switching to carbon-neutral green energy tariffs, which are credited with reducing its overall carbon footprint by 41%, in comparison to 2015. The business has also made hybrid vehicles available across all grades of its fleet, reducing related emissions by 12%.

The group is also striving to install hybrid and energy efficient lighting towers across its sites and is targeting a 100% green energy supply for all of its offices by 2020.

Darren James, Managing Director of Infrastructure, said: “Working closely with our customers and supply chain partners has helped us identify further areas for carbon reduction and innovative approaches to becoming more energy efficient.”
