Environmental Management

Controlling and managing the environmental impacts of procuring materials and manufacturing products is an essential requirement for sustainable development.

Performance Indicator

Percentage of production sites covered by a certified ISO 14001 EMS

Environmental Management Systems, particularly when meeting the requirements of ISO 14001, are a best practice approach to identifying impacts, assessing their importance and providing a structured approach to controlling, reporting and managing performance improvement.

Our indicator shows the percentage of the total concrete production and constituent materials sites that are independently certified to ISO 14001. 2017 data shows that the proportion of certified sites has continued its steady increase now almost 97% already ahead of the 2020 target of 95%.

Further information on the environmental management indicator can be found in the full report. 

This indicator is part of the Materials section of the report and 2020 Commitments. An update on the Materials 2020 commitments.
