TRANSFORMING OUR BUSINESS Construction products have an invaluable role to play in achieving sustainable development. They are used to create homes, schools, hospitals, workplaces and infrastructure, which are essential for social and economic well-being. Along with the many positive benefits, there are impacts from their manufacture and use. As a major provider of construction products, services and solutions, with over 300 sites across the UK, 6,600 employees, thousands of customers and hundreds of communities, we recognise our responsibility to grow our business in a way thatâ€™s good for people and the environment. We are proud of what we have achieved, but there is much more to be done.
We have established a vision and values to transform our business into our customersâ€™ preferred choice for sustainable construction solutions. Achieving this transformation means thinking again about every aspect of our business, products and services; pushing the boundaries to develop innovative solutions, which help our customers create more sustainable buildings and infrastructure. Continuously improving sustainability performance throughout the life-cycle of our products and services, including how they perform in-use, is integral to achieving this transformation. Our ambitious sustainability strategy sets out how we will do this by focusing on the things that really matter and those we can influence.
