Sustainability - Sustainable production

Economic factors

The UK cement industry has a turnover of nearly a billion pounds and provides an essential building material for the £5 billion concrete industry, which in turn supports the £110 billion construction industry.

It employs over 2,000 people and is often the major employer in the mainly rural areas in which it operates.

Since the early 1990s, the industry has invested over £500 million in new plant and equipment, greatly improving its environmental performance and process and energy efficiency.
