We are working to continuously improve our and our customers’ journeys to; lower emissions, decrease carbon footprint, and reduce the environmental impact of project operations.

As part of our Plant Renewal Programme, we invested in new machinery to improve efficiency and productivity on site. In replacing 20 of our 14 tonne machines, a new model was selected, after proving to be 9% more fuel efficient than the previous version.

Tamdown also adopted a greener fleet, selected with a focus on how we could reduce emissions. We have now distributed over 100 new Ford Fiesta mild hybrid vans with impressive eco-boost engines that produce compact precision power, giving an efficient MPG. In addition, the vans are compliant with ultra-low emission zones.

We also work with our housebuilder customers to ensure the delivery of sustainable communities through effective solutions, and see sustainability as a journey for our business alongside our customers and suppliers.

Tamdown has continued to sponsor the planting of a tree for every foundation that the business completes. The total number of trees planted through this sponsorship in the year was 1393 (FY22:1432).

The Facilities team of our Nexus Park head office is working with a range of suppliers to ensure sustainability. We have diverted 100% of our waste from landfill and 32% of our waste is recycled. In addition, we have reduced our annual energy consumption through a range of initiatives including street lighting timers in our car park and careful management of our air conditioning systems. 74% of the energy we use in the building is from renewable sources.
