Mannok Outlines Ambitious Net Zero Decarbonisation Plans

20th September 2022

Mannok recently gave an insight into their ambitious pathway to net zero in a webinar hosted by Construction Buzz. The company’s Sustainability Manager, Paul Monaghan, and Decarbonisation Engineering Manager, Paul Carron, took the audience through a series of projects which will initially help reduce the company’s carbon emissions by a third by the end of the decade.
Mannok published its 2030 Vision, the company’s sustainability strategy to the end of the decade, earlier this year, which included a detailed decarbonisation roadmap focused on alternative fuels, energy efficiency, alternative raw materials and carbon capture, usage and storage. With nine key projects already underway or in planning stages, the company are actively working with global partners and collaborating with cross-industry specialists to utilise, and help develop, innovative technology in its emissions reduction efforts.
But Mannok are already actively working on the longer-term net zero goal, and the webinar’s panel went on to reveal details of previously unpublished plans for a transformative 15-year programme of change, which is set to bring the company to within touching distance of energy independence, and will help achieve its net zero goal by 2050.
The multi-phase programme sets out to harness natural and renewable energy sources and drive innovation in sustainability to create a closed loop process, which will:

  • Replace 4 million litres of diesel per year
  • Decarbonise the production of cement by removing over half a million tonnes of CO2 annually
  • Power Mannok’s downstream and related manufacturing facilities with new 150MW of dedicated renewable capacity

Speaking after the webinar, Mannok’s Sustainability Manager commented,

“The plans we have outlined today are hugely ambitious and highly innovative. Our aim is to lead the way in sustainability, and I think we’ve shown an impressive example of how we intend to do this. The collaboration which has gone into the development of our net zero plans has involved multiple partners from across the globe, which has helped us create a potentially on-off. For this to work, a number of key factors need to align, and our location and the uniquely diverse nature of our business is what makes it possible. We’re very proud to showcase these unique and ambitious plans today and have already received a very positive response from the audience in attendance.”

Those who missed the webinar will have the opportunity to see the recording when Mannok publish it to their social channels in the coming days.
