It is the policy of the Thomas Armstrong Group of companies to reduce our environmental impact wherever practicable. We recognise that our group consists of diverse manufacturing and supply operations whose energy intensity and emissions provide opportunities to make a significant positive improvement on our overall environmental impact. Our goal is to achieve Net Zero Carbon by 2050 in line with international targets.
To achieve these goals, the Thomas Armstrong Group will:
- Measure and monitor our ongoing carbon emissions at all of our group operations.
- Use our 2019 data as a baseline for which to measure our ongoing progress against.
- Publish our Carbon Reduction Roadmap and continually re-evaluate and update this at least annually.
- Set targets at both operational and group levels in line with our Roadmap with the aim for Net Zero by 2050.
Actions currently being developed include:
- The instigation of our group Carbon Reduction Committee whose members represent expertise from all operations across our group which will convene at least every 4 months and report to the board of directors.
- Ongoing and continual collating and verifying our carbon emissions from all of our operations and to this end seeking faster and more accurate ways of achieving this.
- Identifying opportunities to offset our carbon emissions and make our operations carbon neutral wherever possible whilst we drive towards our true Carbon Zero 2050 target.
- Setting targets for reducing our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 carbon emissions which involve the following:

- Minimising our emissions by improving operational efficiencies and investing in innovative technologies and approaches to reduce our resource consumption and the waste that we generate.
- Switching to low-carbon / renewable energy sources wherever possible.
- Working with our suppliers to understand the opportunities to improve our supply chain carbon footprint.
- Maintaining vehicles and energy-intensive plant and equipment in an energy/fuel efficient manner.
- Ensuring that energy efficiency is a key component of any major capital expenditure projects, especially those relating to vehicles, premises, plant and equipment.
- Raising awareness of our energy efficiency targets amongst our employees and clients.
- Sourcing energy efficient and sustainable raw materials and services for use in our operations.
