Bradstone cuts the carbon content of its concrete paving by 20%

6 May 2021
Bradstone Old Town Eco paving

Bradstone Old Town Eco paving. All Bradstone's concrete are now being made of reduced carbon concrete.

Building materials supplier Aggregate Industries has launched the first products in a range it calls Eco, which it says uses more sustainable materials and processes to cut the carbon content of its paving by 20%.

Introduced under its domestic landscaping brand, Bradstone, work is now underway to bring all Bradstone wet cast paving products into the new Eco range.

Bradstone says the move is part of Aggregate Industry’s ongoing commitment to sustainable construction.

The reduction in the carbon footprint of the Eco range is attributed to improvements in manufacturing as well as the product mix.

A typical patio with 30m2 of Bradstone will now account for up to 66kg less carbon produced during the manufacture of the paving than with the previous Bradstone products.

Aggregate Industries says that’s the equivalent CO2 reduction achieved by three mature trees in one year.
