Keltbray Chief Executive Darren James and Keltbay Head of Environmental Sustainability Kiro Tamer have both been awarded the title ICE Carbon Champion by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE). They are both one of 27 individuals, working across 9 projects, to have their efforts be recognised.

The ICE Carbon Champions programme recognises decarbonisation efforts from across the civil engineering community, and provides recognition for project owners as well as best practice insights and expertise for the wider industry.

Lara Young, Chair of the ICE Carbon Champions Review Panel, said:

“Civil engineering is all about transforming lives and improving the way we live. Finding sustainable ways to design, deliver and optimise infrastructure is a critical for our generation.

“It’s been inspiring see such impressive carbon reduction efforts in practice, making tangible difference to the way we live today. These individuals, and their teams, are building sustainable resilient infrastructure that is fit for our futures, and to celebrate that is important.”

Kiro Tamer, Head of Environmental Sustainability and ICE Carbon Champion, said:

“Our drive to digitise our processes in order to visualise our efficiency and reduce carbon emissions is key to our Net-Zero Strategy. We are delighted to have been recognised for our efforts and to have become an ICE Carbon Champion.

Our industry needs to come together to speed the rate of change in order to significantly reduce our emissions and what better way to do it than sharing best practices with ICE who are supporting and coordinating the industry’s quest to Net-Zero”
