Our Performance

Objectives

At Albion Stone we aim to:

1. Explore different extraction method that reduce or eliminate the use of water.

2. Reduce the mains water consumption in the quarries and mine by 50% over 2 years.

3. Reduce mains water consumption in the factory by 20% per annum.

4. Increase the rainwater harvesting system by 1,000m ³ over 3 years.

5. Continue to expand the factory water recycling and harvesting system where possible.
