Ensuring safety in our daily life is a task that never stops: whether our workers are on or outside our premises, or during the commute to and from work. Our structured and continuously evolving approach is built around our teammates who, with their experience, professional attitude, and dedication to caring for each other, take responsibility and ownership every day to apply safety rules and regulations, and act when needed to prevent unsafe work conditions.

As part of the resource-intensive building materials and construction industry we need to find ways to reintroduce materials into continuous circles of material flows. For us, waste is not waste, but a potential valuable resource which can be regenerated or repurposed and turned into something new.
