For numerous years, concrete product manufacturers, such as Forticrete, have looked to progress by taking steps to respect the environment by improving waste management.

John Lambert, Managing Director of Forticrete, commented on how the company give their full backing to the viewpoint of having a greater focus on the lifetime of developments and how recycling and waste management will be achieved during their operation.

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.”
