Hanson has unveiled its sustainability policy that aligns with parent company HeidelbergCement Group’s Sustainability Commitments 2030.
Hanson’s strategy focuses on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals that cover social, economic and environmental sustainability.
In Australia, Hanson has focused on using recycled water, rehabilitation initiatives, air quality control and design of low impact products to lower the company’s carbon footprint.
Sustainability manager Brendan Liversis said the policy will strive to decrease the use of CO2 emissions.
“Driving the circular economy and finding a second use for waste materials through recycling or upcycling is another key plank in supporting a sustainable construction industry,” Liveris told Greenroads.
“This is core business for our Alex Fraser Recycling operations where a range of materials are diverted from waste and recycled to build greener infrastructure and drive circular economic growth.”
Hanson’s sustainability also focuses on creating a circular economy, which has been demonstrated through Alex Fraser.
“The introduction of the Group’s Sustainability Policy represents an exciting step for Hanson,” Liveris said. “It calls for contributions from all corners of the business to realise our goals that will benefit the environment, our communities, the economy, our people and our business.”
