Carbon Reduction Through Process and Behavioural Change

Sysdoc led an award-winning programme with the five major Aggregates organisations, delivering carbon savings above projected targets through a structured change programme delivered at quarry level.

The Carbon Trust commissioned a strategic report which identified that 30% of the long-term UK targets for carbon reduction in the Aggregates sector could be realised via behavioural and process change.

The programme was funded by an Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund (ALSF), and as the first of its kind, it required buy-in from multiple stakeholders and sponsors, both from the Carbon Trust and the five major Aggregates organisations which we drove proactively from the word go.

The programme was launched via workshops at quarry level, designed to build awareness and excitement for the programme. Change champions were identified at every site to work with their colleagues to identify, measure and deliver carbon-saving initiatives.

Deploying Sysdoc's innovative approach to delivering change, we designed a blended programme including workshops, 'toolbox talks', posters, videos, quick reference cards and a Carbon Saving calculator. Change was adopted in waves to create a slow shift in behaviour - making what was once acceptable, unacceptable.

We also did a lot of 'myth-busting' and showed the financial benefits that some of the incremental and seemingly small changes could make. The numbers spoke for themselves and contributed to the programme being awarded a coveted international green award.

Sysdoc created a web portal for disseminating tried and tested resources to reduce emissions and save money in a highly competitive environment.
