Laing O’Rourke switches to low-carbon concrete

Laing O’Rourke announced it has switched to low-carbon concrete on all of its new UK projects from April. Following a long-term research programme co-funded by Laing O’Rourke and Innovate UK, and in collaboration with the University of Cambridge and the University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC), the business has proven that a range of low-carbon concrete options can be successfully deployed on projects as a like-for-like substitute for traditional concrete. The overall carbon reduction will be 28% when compared with the company’s concrete usage in 2022. This equates to a saving of 14.4 million kg CO2e, which is the same as planting 120,000 trees or 94 hectares of forest.
