Our Performance

Objectives

At Albion Stone we aim to:

1. Reduce the amount of electricity we use throughout our factory production process by 1% per £1 of finished stone sales per annum.

2. Maximise the use of renewable energy and explore the possibilities of use of other renewable energy sources.

3. Review extraction operations and seek to use more efficient technologies to reduce fuel oil consumption by 12% over 3 years.

4. Monitor and reduce our carbon footprint by 15% over a 3 year period.
