A Contractor’s journey to net zero – the value of repurposing materials

Re-using recovered stone as street furniture and cutting the stone from a retained façade in half to re-clad a rebuild, then using the other half on the rest of the building is all par for the course for PAYE. The company has embarked on Scope Three of its move to Net Zero, removing as much carbon as possible from its work on site by using electric vehicles and machinery and HVO (hydro-treated vegetable oil) to power generators. Digital technology is also playing its part in PAYE’s drive to greener contracting. PAYE Director Robert Greer explains the threefold reasoning for the carbon-cutting moves: 1) clients expect it; 2) as others enter Scope Three they look at their supply chains; 3) It’s the right thing to do for the sake of future generations.
