TARMAC, a leading UK construction materials company, and a major concrete supplier, has become a founder signatory to the revised Concrete Industry Sustainable Construction Strategy. The strategy comprises of six commitments designed to help companies try and deliver 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, Director of Sustainability at Tarmac, says: “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 recognise 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.”
As well as this commitment, TARMAC recently achieved the Carbon Trust Standard across its whole business, having 100 per cent of its products certified as responsibly sourced, and the industry’s first five-star rating from Achilles BuildingConfidence for effective supply chain management.
