Heathrow is the UK’s busiest airport, and in 2019 served over 81 million passengers. We pride ourselves on giving excellent service, our vision is to give the Best Airport Service in the World. We want to do this, whilst minimising our carbon footprint and operating as the hub airport for the UK, connecting people, families and businesses across the globe. As we work towards our recovery from the impacts of COVID 19, we are continuing with the activity of maintaining, enhancing and developing the airport, and our capital works programme (2019 capital spend at circa £650m), is highly dependent on key materials such as steel.
Darren Colderwood, Director of Infrastructure at Heathrow, said: “We are striving to develop low-carbon, sustainable solutions, where we use re-use existing hardware, reduce our use of new materials, optimise the materials that we do use, and reduce the carbon footprint of everything that we do, and we are delighted to be joining Responsible Steel. We see this as a key next step in our pursuit of working with sustainably-sourced, low-carbon products that help us to achieve our objectives whilst minimising our impact on the planet.”
“We are delighted to welcome Heathrow – one of the world’s busiest airports – as a business member of ResponsibleSteel” said Ali Lucas, Executive Director, ResponsibleSteel. “It is incredibly encouraging to see that companies such as Heathrow who, whilst navigating the challenges of recovering from COVID 19 – recognise that becoming a member of and working together with ResponsibleSteel can help to achieve their objectives of using low carbon, sustainable products.”back to news
