As a leader in the building products industry, our intention is to be a Future-Fit Business that leads a transformation in the design and building of spaces fit for today and tomorrow.
This intention is the cornerstone of our sustainability ambition, as set out in our 2021 Sustainability Report. We are committed to making a difference in the spaces where people live, work, learn, heal and play, so that our business and our communities will thrive.
In particular, we will do our part to:
- Engage a diverse, purpose-driven workforce;
- Transform buildings from structures that shelter into structures that serve and preserve the health and wellbeing of people and planet;
- Pursue sustainable and innovative solutions;
- Be a catalyst for change to drive value for all our stakeholders; and
- Make a positive difference in the environments and communities we impact.
We recognize we have a role to play in creating a healthier and restorative environment both inside — and outside — our fences. That means we will strive to develop innovative and sustainable solutions in an efficient and sustainable way, and to create healthy, inspiring and joyful spaces that positively contribute to the health and wellness of people and the environment.
We’ll do that while working continuously to eliminate any negative impacts associated with our business, by sustainably sourcing our materials, developing sustainable supply chains, and designing for a circular economy. We will also strive to do more with less, reducing carbon and waste, and optimizing water use to create positive change for people, communities, planet and our business.
And in the process, we will build up the people around us, creating an inclusive, fulfilled workforce so we’re better able to contribute to structures that serve. We will maintain workplace environments that are healthy and safe for employees and engage in communities where we operate to make them vibrant places to live and work.
