CRH produces a Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report annually.
The 2011 Report is CRH's ninth Report describing its approach to sustainable development and CSR. It describes key aspects of CRH's sustainability performance under four headings: Health & Safety, Environment & Climate Change, Governance and People & Community. It also contains general information on CRH to facilitate understanding of our business and our approach to Sustainability and CSR. As open communication with all stakeholders is a hallmark of CRH, details on communication activities are also included.
CRH was among the first companies in its sector to achieve full independent verification of its Sustainability and CSR Report, and as in previous years, the 2011 Report has been externally verified. Detailed verification statements are included in the Report. CRH has voluntarily adopted the “G3” Sustainability Reporting Guidelines developed by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), and the 2011 Report complies with the requirements for an A+ application level.
