Who are Aggregate Industries?
Aggregate Industries, part of the LafargeHolcim Group, has over 300 UK sites producing and supplying aggregates, asphalt, cement, ready-mixed concrete and blocks and providing national road surfacing/contracting services. As a leading player in the construction industry we are very conscious of the impact our supply chain, products and services have on people, the environment and the economy.
We are committed to creating a better built environment through sustainable approaches with focus on health and safety, logistics, the environment and community, ethical business practice and product innovation – not just in our own business, but our supply chain too.
Sustainability is at the heart of our business, from our values to our vision, and is one of our strategic pillars. Our commitments focus on the themes that are most material to our business: Climate, Water & Nature, Circular Economy, People & Communities.
