FM Conway secures coveted carbon certification

Infrastructure services company FM Conway is now British Standards Institute (BSI) certified to PAS 2080:2023, the global standard for the management and reduction of whole-life carbon in infrastructure and the built environment. 

PAS 2080 provides the framework for managing whole-life carbon across infrastructure projects through promotion of early collaboration with the whole value chain and embedding low carbon decision making into every phase of works.

The stringent audit process highlighted FM Conway’s self-delivery model as a key contributor to intelligently designing out carbon, as well as its bespoke whole-life carbon assessment and reporting tool which contains over 15,000 materials and fuels – enabling carbon impact assessments to be provided for all works it delivers. The certification illustrates the business’ dedication to continual improvement and fostering a culture that promotes and incentivises carbon reduction both across the business and in collaboration with the supply chain.

By achieving PAS 2080 certification as a ‘constructor’, FM Conway solidifies its position as an industry leader in sustainability and its commitment to supporting clients in achieving their decarbonisation goals.

FM Conway Sustainability Director, Matt Tallon, said: “Collaboration and innovation across the infrastructure industry is essential to deliver net zero, and our PAS 2080 certification reflects our commitment to those values. Our clients have ambitious targets, and they need their partners to work with them to lead the change. We’ve long been a pioneer in highways recycling and we’re building on that experience to ensure we combine the right materials, construction methods, and technical expertise, to deliver maximum whole-life carbon savings –making these carbon goals a reality.”

Catherine Wilkins, Category Management Group Lead at National Highways adds: “As one of the UK’s largest buyers of construction materials and services, we have a significant opportunity to catalyse Britain’s construction industry to deliver Net Zero. We have stipulated that our large and medium suppliers must be certified against PAS 2080 by the end of 2025 and are delighted that FM Conway has already achieved this important milestone.”
