We engage with multiple stakeholders around the world, serving as a materials and products provider to thousands of projects, an employer to tens of thousands, and operating as a family of businesses immersed in our local communities. Together with our employees, customers, suppliers and stakeholders, we are determined to make a positive difference for people, society and the environment.

We support the principles set out in the articles of the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Labour Organisation’s Core Labour Principles. Our commitment is formalised through our Code of Business Conduct (CoBC). We have recently published our ‘Commitment to Human Rights: Tackling Modern Slavery Statement’.

We aim to develop a responsible sourcing approach that is world class and ensures our businesses are well-equipped to deal with the challenges of implementing and managing a sustainable supply chain.

Irish Cement Limerick fundraising for local community respite care

In 2019, a team of 30 runners and walkers from Irish Cement, part of our Europe Materials Division in Ireland, completed the Great Limerick Run, raising €10,000 for St Gabriel's Children's Respite House. The new facility, located close to the Irish Cement plant in Mungret, will provide state-of-the-art respite care for children with complex disabilities and high medical needs.
