Ireland’s Largest Construction Company are Dramatically Reducing their Carbon Footprint

John Sisk & Son Ltd, is Ireland’s largest construction company, and has been a leading innovator in the construction industry for over 160 years.

Operating engines, generators, and vehicles across their many Irish sites, SISK has traditionally relied on diesel to fuel its’ nationwide operations.

As part of their 2030 Sustainability Roadmap, SISK had set the ambitious goal of becoming Net-zero in terms of emissions by 2030.

The team at John Sisk & Sons. identified the use of HVO biofuel as a potentially impactful vehicle to help them achieve this target.

In partnership with Certa, the SISK team went about sourcing the supply of HVO biofuel on a trial basis for a small number of its Irish sites. The team performed trials to evaluate the effectiveness of using HVO biofuel as an alternative energy source to diesel on sites.

Given the fact that diesel fuel accounted for 41% of the SISK group’s overall carbon emissions, and with HVO reducing these emissions by up to 90%, that the group could immediately reduce emissions by up to 37% by making the switch.

Following the success of the trials, SISK have mandated HVO biofuel for use across all of their Irish sites. Ian O’Connor, Energy Manager at John Sisk & Sons. described the switch as a ‘major step-forward’ in realising the group’s 2030 emission reduction targets.
