Effective and compliant environmental management remains a cornerstone of Lamprell’s operations. To drive this, we are using a standardised reporting regime, which enables timely and accurate measurement of all major environmental impacts from Group activities. A number of environmental management improvements were made possible through initiatives such as the realignment of Lamprell compressors to maximise efficiency and the replacement of some diesel powered cranes. In 2015 a total of nine overhead electric gantry cranes were installed at our Sharjah and Hamriyah facilities to replace some of the diesel powered crawler cranes.
Lamprell also participated in the international Carbon Disclosure Project (“CDP”) in which organisations submit operational data that has an impact upon the environment. The Disclosure Score for the CDP report submitted for 2015 reflected a significant improvement from previous years.

2015 Lamprell Group CO2e emissions
- 52,410 tonnes Scope 1 – Emissions from Lamprell owned or operated entities
- 4,280 tonnes Scope 2 – Emissions from electricity and water purchased from government utilities
- 3,280 tonnes Scope 3 – Emissions from other third party activities purchased by Lamprell
Throughout 2015 the Group diverted the majority of operational waste away from landfill sites and into recycling plants. This was achieved through a best practice waste segregation source management approach and linking the organisation’s waste recycling systems with a leading UAE recycling enterprise. Going forward, Lamprell will continue to investigate and implement ways to extend our waste management processes into other sectors and improve the overall percentage diverted from landfill.
In addition, the yard layout optimisation measures instigated at our Sharjah and Hamriyah facilities were undertaken to maximise efficiency and reduce operational costs. Part of this project incorporated the replacement of older diesel compressors with new electric models. This capital investment by the Company resulted in an annual diesel saving of 1,572,060 litres and the reduction of 2,330 tonnes of CO2e emissions which were not emitted through the switch to the cleaner (electric) energy source.
