To be socially and ecologically responsible while also being economically successful. This principle of sustainability is the guideline Braas Monier uses for long-term strategic, as well as day-to-day, decisions and activities. As a company we are aware of our economical, ecological and social responsibility.
We aim to make positive impacts with our products and innovations, our people, our behaviour and our operations. It is not just about complying with legislation, but to do more. Sustainable construction requires consideration of not only the environmental impacts of construction activity but also the social and economic impacts as well. This section provides our customers with information on how Redland manages these impacts today in order that we don't compromise the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
Preserving and protecting the environment is a prime objective for Braas Monier. We continuously benchmark the environmental performance of our operations and supply chain processes to reduce the footprint of our activities.
