Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are essential components of the CRH business model. CRH is dedicated to extensive and transparent reporting of sustainability performance.

The 2019 Sustainability Report is our seventeenth Report and we are committed to continuing to measure and report extensively on our sustainability performance. We have expanded on the reporting of key non-financial metrics and performance indicators in the Annual Financial Report in the areas of workplace safety, climate change and workplace inclusivity.

We were among the first companies in our sector to achieve full independent verification of our Sustainability Report. We have voluntarily adopted the “GRI Standards” developed by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and the GRI Index is included within the Report.
