A Greener Future

AG are committed to conserving and enhancing local biodiversity across all of our manufacturing locations, demonstrating best practice and raising public awareness – ensuring the wildlife, species, habitats and geo-diversity are considered, managed and safeguarded in all our business activities.

Reduce Emissions

At AG we already have one of the lowest carbon footprints in the industry and this pledge to reduce scope 1 and 2 emissions by 30% highlights our dedication to reducing the environmental impact of our operations to an absolute minimum.

AG has embraced responsible sourcing, carbon emissions reductions, recycling and repurposing as integral elements of business operations and core to new product and process development.

Renewable Energy


AG has switched to 100% renewable energy, reducing CO2 levels.



We’ve installed electric charge points on all sites and currently run a fleet part comprised of bio-diesel, hybrid and electric vehicles for business and industrial transport.



All our products are 100% recyclable, even the packaging for palletised loads – delivering both environmental and business benefits.


We are commited to using less water in our manufacturing processes utilising recycled water.

Queens University Belfast


AG partnered in a successful Innovation programme with Queens University to reduce Carbon Emissions in our manufacturing, leading to a KTP Future Leader Award.

Reduce Travel


Incorporated virtual meetings to reduce unnecessary travel and also operating a ‘Cycle to Work’ scheme.

Fivemiletown Wash Plant

A £2 million investment in a new wash plant has facilitated very significant cost and efficiency savings and reduced carbon levels. The wash plant also enhances product consistency, leading to better quality finished products and, crucially, allows AG to process waste materials, including discontinued lines, and recycle into new production.

Business in the Community
