Milestone Infrastructure has successfully been shortlisted in the ‘Carbon Reduction Champion’ and ‘Low Carbon Project of the Year’ categories.

Milestone’s shortlisting for the Carbon Reduction Champion is in recognition of the ambitious steps that Milestone is taking in the delivery of its target of net-zero carbon by 2040. This has included the creation and implementation of the Milestone Environment Strategy 2025 and its associated Carbon Reduction Plan, outlining how the business plans to achieve these aims.

Experts throughout Milestone Infrastructure have embedded products and processes which will be fundamental to achieving its ambitious net-zero targets, including the creation of a live carbon dashboard. The carbon dashboard allows Milestone’s dedicated team of Environmental Advisors to evaluate, identify, measure and report on carbon hotspots. Other examples of innovative, low-carbon practices include the use of low-temperature asphalt, cement-free kerbing and the rollout of Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil diesels (HVO), to name but a few.

For the Low Carbon Project of the Year award, Milestone has been shortlisted for its role in the construction of the Micheldever Road Materials Recycling Facility (MRMRF), in collaboration with Hampshire County Council and OCL Regeneration.

The recycling facility processes waste into a range of commercial highways materials, increasing sustainable production and scope of their reuse, and is Environment Agency-approved. In 2021, the facility recycled over 22,000 tonnes of waste and saved over 280 tonnes of carbon.

Adrian Cooke, Managing Director, commented: “We are delighted to have been shortlisted for two awards at this year’s Construction News Awards.

“Our shortlisting in the Carbon Reduction Champion and Low Carbon Project of the Year categories is recognition of our strategic focus to deliver safer, greener highways and celebrates our talented people who proactively apply their environmental expertise through implementing cutting-edge technologies and processes to drive down our carbon footprint.

“The recognition of our role in the construction of the Micheldever Road Materials Recycling Facility is a great example of how we collaborate with clients and partners to share a coordinated approach towards sustainability. The carbon savings that this facility has already created, and will continue to, highlights the progress we are making in our continuous drive to achieve net-zero carbon.”

The winners of this year’s awards will be announced on Thursday 14 July at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
