Our Performance

Objectives

At Albion Stone we aim to:

1. Increase the yield at the face of extraction in the mine and quarry, where geology allows.

2. Make a reduction of waste at source and make use of off-cuts through increased sales of by-products -we aim to increase the sale of by-products by 5% per annum, however we have not set a specific target for the reduction of waste as this is typically controlled by the geology of the material that we are sourcing.

3. Look to use recycled packaging where possible - due to a higher quantity of planned exports of finished goods, we expect our packaging figure to inevitably increase.
