This week, Milestone Infrastructure is attending the Highways UK conference at the NEC, Birmingham and offering visitors a unique opportunity to help the environment.
We are handing out 250 UK native pine trees to people visiting our stand at the conference.
Ed Godsiffe, Head of Sustainability at Milestone Infrastructure, said: “If planted, the trees have the potential to save 6tCO2e annually or 1,200tCO2e over their average lifetime.”
As part of our commitment to the environment, we are keen to find sustainable alternatives to the methods and materials traditionally used. That is why the trees are being handed out in environmentally friendly boxes. These boxes are biodegradable and can be planted along with the trees, minimising our environmental impact.
Our priority is to behave with integrity, operating in the most respectful and sustainable ways to protect our people, local communities and the environment.
Milestone Infrastructure is working towards its goal of achieving a 50% reduction in carbon intensity by 2030 and net-zero by 2040. These net-zero goals will help contribute to the wider Group’s commitment of a 50% reduction in carbon emissions by 2030 and net-zero by 2050.
The Highways UK conference has over 200 exhibitors from across the globe with industry leading figures sharing their expertise. Highways UK is bringing together the people responsible for planning, developing, managing, maintaining and future-proofing the nation’s road networks.
