Tarmac reinforce sustainable concrete commitment
Company becomes a founder signatory of the revised Concrete Industry Sustainable Construction Strategy
TARMAC have pledged their commitment to sustainability by becoming a founder signatory to the revised Concrete Industry Sustainable Construction Strategy.
The strategy is led by the Sustainable Concrete Forum (SCF) – a consortium of producers and trade bodies from across the concrete sector – and was first developed in 2008.
The new strategy comprises six commitments that help the industry contribute to the delivery of a zero-carbon built environment though monitoring and providing transparent whole-life data, sharing best practice, low-carbon transport, monitoring water usage, targeting continuous improvement in sustainable production performance and reporting performance annually.
Dr Martyn Kenny (pictured), director of sustainability at Tarmac, said: ‘The concrete sector has made great progress in measuring, managing and reducing its impact, while enhancing its contribution to creating a sustainable and zero-carbon built environment.
‘We recognize that we need to continue this important work and the new Concrete Industry Sustainable Construction Strategy provides an effective way to lead the construction sector and drive further progress.’
