We are committed to developing a zero harm culture where everyone feels involved, respected and connected. We proactively engage with all our stakeholders in an honest and transparent manner.
Sustainability is embedded at the heart of our business, from our vision to our values and strategy. It guides our actions and the way we work. Sustainability matters because it is central to our collective long-term future. Not just for the financial success of Tarmac, but also for the communities in which we work and the environment upon which we all rely. It influences how we work at every level of our business.
We are committed to managing our operations in a responsible, sustainable way and to develop innovative products, services and solutions to support our customers’ drive for more sustainable construction. By working closely with our customers we can reduce the environmental footprint of projects and deliver a more sustainable built environment.
We take a ‘whole life’ approach, addressing not only the extraction, manufacture and transport of our products but also consider their sustainable performance in use and opportunities for reuse and recycling at end of life. We use management systems certified to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 across our operations to continuously improve social, economic and environmental performance. Our commitment to support our customers and provide sustainable solutions is further demonstrated by certification across our product range to BES 6001, the framework standard for Responsible Sourcing and the Achilles Building Confidence scheme.
Our sustainability strategy confirms our key priorities, commitments and targets to drive continuous environmental improvement and embed sustainable practices throughout our business. Our four priority areas are People, Planet, Performance and Solutions.

We’re serious about managing and reducing the carbon footprint of our products and our business, and helping our customers to do the same. Tarmac’s Carbon Footprint Calculator enables calculation of the embodied emissions of our products and services.
