By creating sustainable economic value we not only ensure the long-term success for our business, employees and investors, we contribute to the success of our customers and the users of the built environment our products help to create.
We also play a valuable role, benefiting local economies and communities through the creation of wealth and skilled employment.
By doing this we fulfil our responsibilities to our stakeholders, but also generate economic value that can be invested in improving the social and environmental performance of the company, for instance by developing low carbon technologies and products that help customers build more sustainably, efficiently and profitably.
We create economic value in the following ways:
● Through provision of jobs and career opportunities
● Through purchasing local goods and services
● Through paying taxes and levies to government
● Through the new homes, offices and infrastructure created from our products.
