He expressed Forticrete’s commitment to sustainable manufacturing with the mantra of sustainability at the heart of its strategy and honoured the importance of the findings as it recognises the steps manufacturers are taking to reduce their respective impacts on society.
He implored businesses throughout the supply chain to work together so the report can be used by the Government in its policy-making process.”
