In January 2008, UK mastic asphalt became the first industry in the world to achieve the CarbonZero standard. To achieve CarbonZero status, the UK mastic asphalt industry is effectively taxing itself in the interests of the environment. Individual companies have taken this route before but this is a world first for an entire industry.
Through CO2balance, IKO provides a mastic asphalt solution with no discernible carbon footprint. By pooling resources and reaching a unanimous decision, we are now in a position to influence the green thinking of every industry in the world. Through this remarkable feat, we want to inspire the entire construction industry – in Britain, Europe and across the globe – to unite with us in the battle against climate change. We are delighted to be leading the way in offsetting carbon emissions but hope it’s not too long before others join us in setting the CarbonZero standard.
