Construction Industry

Throughout the construction industry sustainability is measured in many ways; both upstream during the manufacturing process and downstream in how construction projects are built and operated.


Compared to many parts of the world, the environment and population in the UK are well protected by legislation and specification. The industries that provide the raw materials required for the production of concrete are covered by a vast range of legislation and specification to give the end user, specifier and other stakeholders the peace of mind that concrete products have been responsibly resourced and produced.
