Not just safer, greener highways – Milestone Infrastructure deliver carbon neutral attendance to Highways UK

This week, Milestone Infrastructure is attending the Highways UK conference at The NEC,
Birmingham and offering visitors a unique opportunity to help the environment.
The company is handing out 250 UK native pine trees to people visiting our stand at the event.

Ed Godsiffe, Head of Sustainability at Milestone Infrastructure, said: “If planted, the trees
have the potential to save 6tCO2e annually or 1,200tCO2e over their average lifetime.”
As part of our commitment to the environment, we are keen to find sustainable alternatives
to the methods and materials traditionally used. That is why the trees are being handed out
in environmentally friendly boxes. These boxes are biodegradable and can be planted along
with the trees, minimising our environmental impact.

The company’s priority is to behave with integrity, operating in the most respectful and sustainable ways
to protect our people, local communities and the environment.
Milestone Infrastructure is working towards its goal of achieving a 50% reduction in carbon
intensity by 2030 and net-zero by 2040. These net-zero goals will help contribute to the
wider Group’s commitment of a 50% reduction in carbon emissions by 2030 and net-zero by 2050.
