What makes galvanising sustainable?

Galvanisation, at its core, is an inherently sustainable process as it focuses on increasing the longevity of steel and giving it greater protection against corrosion. Hot dip galvanising provides long-lasting protection for iron and steel through a robust, metallurgically bonded coating with self-healing properties.

When steel receives the protection it needs, it can remain in place for decades without requiring maintenance and greatly helps to lower emissions by reducing the amount of new steel needing to be fabricated. This makes it a vital asset to reducing the energy demands in construction, especially at a time when we must all be more mindful of our environmental impact.


Every 90 seconds one tonne of steel turns to rust.

The Galvanizers Association estimates

For every two tonnes steel made one tonne is to replace rusted material.

How we make our processes more sustainable

We take sustainability seriously at LGPC. In order to make our own processes greener and more efficient, we undertook an energy audit of our business and made several improvements:

01 Enhancing the future of world-class structures
with concern for the environment

  • Reducing energy consumption by investing in new low kilowatt ovens.

  • Recycling heat generated from treatment baths to heat other areas of the plant.

  • Installing a state-of-the-art novel flux regeneration plant, to extend the life of pre-treatment solutions.

  • Optimising oven design for increased energy efficiency.

  • Switching to sensor controlled, energy efficient LED lighting.

  • We reduce our environmental impact through maintaining high standards of waste segregation and both on/off site recycling and processing.

Planting Trees

We have planted 300 trees around our site.

Cycle to work

As part of our drive to encourage a lower carbon footprint throughout our business, we have also taken part in a Cycle to Work scheme to give our staff a more environmentally friendly way to travel to and from our site.

Reducing Vehicle Emissions

We are committed to having a full fleet of low emissions vehicles by 2022.
