Environmental Label for Construction Material
‘Ready-Mixed Concrete’ from Alliance Construction Materials Limited has been Granted the SGS Product Carbon Footprint Mark
Alliance Construction Materials Limited (Alliance), one of the largest suppliers of building materials to the construction industry in Hong Kong, has recently been awarded SGS Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) mark for their feature product – Ready-mixed concrete (concrete). This is also believed to be the first-of-its-kind Product-based Carbon Footprint project in Hong Kong’s construction industry.
As an industry pioneer with strong sustainability commitment, Alliance is always committed to environmental conservation, and has focused their efforts on energy saving initiatives and organization carbon footprint study since 2008.
In order to identify main emission sources of the product and highlight further the carbon footprint features of its concrete product, Alliance trusts SGS expertise in carrying out product carbon footprint assessment via quantification of carbon emissions of concrete within its product life cycle in 2011.
SGS’s PCF mark also positions Alliance as a role-model to its partner companies and stakeholders. This, in turn, helps Alliance respond well to the green materials procurement trends in public works projects by the HKSAR government. With low-carbon construction and green building materials as a rising trend in Hong Kong, Alliance is certainly on the right track!
