To be recognised as a responsible business which uses both raw materials and waste beneficially with a minimal impact on the environment.
Conserve natural resources by avoiding or reusing waste; develop products that have low embodied impacts.
Minimise waste and improve material efficiency and recycling as defined in the waste heirarchy; maximise production efficiency.
Reduce non-process waste to landfill by 85 per cent; Increase cement replacements in concrete to 45 per cent; recycled aggregate in asphalt (excluding filler dust) to 10 per cent and concrete plants recycling surplus concrete to 95 per cent – all by 2020
