Small steps to achieve bigger things at Tarmac

Tarmac, part of our Europe Heavyside Division in the UK, has had a sustained focus on diversity and inclusion, concentrating recently on supporting women in the industry and youth employment.

Recognising that open and inclusive businesses are better placed to deliver long-term value, further considered steps are being taken across the whole company to build a diverse talent pipeline and nurture inclusion at all points of the employee journey. Tarmac is also aiming to make targeted progress in additional inclusion issues such as social mobility.

Republic Cement “Kitchen of Care” programme

Following a successful 2017, Republic Cement, part of our Europe Materials Division, has continued in its efforts to combat child malnutrition in the Philippines.

The company launched a second ‘kusina’, a community space equipped with kitchen facilities, in its host community in the Bulacan province this year. They have also developed a community garden for the growing of local fruit and vegetables that can be used by all involved in the project. Through the Kusina ng Kalinga (Kitchen of Care) programme, Republic strives to educate the surrounding community about the value of proper nutrition. Children also receive free, nutritious lunches from the kusina every school day.
