Lignacite are pleased to confirm that they have met the necessary requirements to achieve the status of "Charter Member", under the conditions of the British Precast Sustainability Charter scheme.
Understanding the Charter
The aim of the Precast Sector Sustainability Charter is to encourage member companies of British Precast to go beyond legislation and take voluntary actions to make their products and operations more sustainable. In order to meet this aim, a set of sustainability principles has been developed based on the key sustainability issues facing the precast industry; these issues are shown in the diagram below, and were identified by British Precast following consultation with the industry and examination of the priorities and concerns of its primary stakeholders.
The benefits of the Sustainability Charter
The Precast Sector Sustainability Charter provides member companies with a way of demonstrating that they are going beyond legislation and undertaking voluntary actions to improve their performance on a range of issues under the broad theme of sustainability. Furthermore, it guides companies to address the issues that have been identified as having the greatest impacts on economic viability, social progress and environmental performance in the precast sector. The charter also provides the industrys stakeholders with a means of differentiating between those companies that are committed to sustainability and continuous improvement of their performance, and those who have not yet made this commitment.
A copy of the certificate will be available on the website shortly.
