Sustainability is embedded at the heart of our business, from our vision to our values and strategy. It guides our actions and the way we work. Sustainability matters because it is central to our collective long-term future. Not just for the financial success of Tarmac, but also for the communities in which we work and the environment upon which we all rely. It influences how we work at every level of our business.
As one of the world's largest providers of materials and cement we are committed to providing construction materials and solutions that make a positive contribution to the built environment. By working closely with our customers, together we can reduce the environmental footprint of projects and deliver innovative, more sustainable solutions. We take a 'whole life' approach, addressing not only the extraction, manufacture and transport of our products but also consider their sustainable performance in use and opportunities for reuse and recycling at end of life.
