Sustainable practices

For Cement Australia, ‘sustainable practices’ means putting our sustainability strategy into action and improving the way we do our jobs.

Our key focus areas are:

  • Management of safety, health, environment and compliance issues
  • Improved water management
  • Reducing our greenhouse gas emissions
  • Resource conservation – Cement Australia is one of the largest material recyclers in Australia

Our sustainable practices include:

  • Cement Australia maintains certified management systems for Safety, Health and the Environment (SHE)
  • Through our alternative fuels and raw materials strategy we aim to replace first-use materials wherever practical and wherever waste management and/or emissions performance also benefits
  • Through our water management policy, we are committed to the conservation, protection and responsible use of water resources (link)
  • We are continuing to integrate evolving sustainability metrics into traditional business
