The 2030 commitments are the cornerstones of our sustainability strategy. They were first introduced in 2018 and, in 2020, we revised some of the related topics and their deadlines to reflect environmental and social developments. They now include several new or updated targets and an even broader range of responsibilities in corporate sustainability management.
At their heart are our parent company Heidelberg Materials' six sustainability commitments:
- Business and product innovation
- Health, safety and wellbeing
- Environmental responsibility
- Resource use and the circular economy
- Being a good neighbour
- Fairness, inclusion and respect
We have also adopted and linked the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDG’s) to the strategy’s key areas to demonstrate we are in line with global action.
Sustainability Policy - Key sustainability topics
Effective management of safety, health, environment, quality, energy, carbon reduction, and responsible sourcing is of key importance to the sustained success of our business. We have a single sustainability policy, which is regularly reviewed and communicated to employees, contractors, visitors, key stakeholders and our supply chain to inform and promote wider adoption of responsible practices. As a minimum, we comply with all applicable legal and regulatory requirements. Co-operation in the effective implementation of the policy is a condition of employment, partnership and supply.
