Shay Murtagh has sealed its commitment to the Environment. In 2000 we became the first concrete manufacturer in Ireland to achieve ISO 14001 Certification “ Environmental Management System.
This system enforces strong policy on recycling of materials such as water, oil, batteries, paper. As part of our now Integrated Management System, we have in place an annual management programme which sets out targets to be achieved each year. However dust and noise levels, electricity and water usage, diesel consumption are examined on an ongoing basis.
With a material base on site there is a consistent plan of reinstatement as an area becomes exhausted. As a result of this there is now a nine hole golf course in play available to the local community during business hours. Also in one of the disused lakes we have also stocked with rainbow trout and carp. This is fished in certain months on a catch and release basis.
Investment into technology has resulted in reduced carbon emissions within the production facility. Construction of a monorail system around the factory for the distribution of concrete to moulds means there is little to no requirement of trucks being used within the confines of the factory. There are now three batching/mixing plants in operation all using exacting measurements therefore creating little wastage.
We have consulted and involved our staff and local community with this ongoing process. Supplying recycling bins in our car park allows staff members to recycle from home. Our local national school Raharney N S received its green flag in 2007, we supported their achievement and continue to do so.
Our environmentally friendly Rainwater Harvesting System
Along with this we have launched Rainman Rainwater Harvesting System. This involves the recycling of rainwater for use in a range of areas. Directly marketed at the domestic area this system has grown from strength to strength with each passing year. People are aware that using potable/drinking water to flush toilets and other household functions is wastage and are doing their part to help in the conservation of water.
We continue to look for new ideas for conservation, recycling and reinstatement to make Shay Murtagh as environmentally friendly in an economical fashion.
