At CRH Serbia we strongly believe that our future is based on sustainability. As an integral component of our vision, which is the foundation of all our operations and initiatives, we have recognized sustainability management as an essential factor influencing development and defined goals related to the three pillars of sustainability:
- Economic responsibility: we endavour to create efficiency and economic growth, and to increase our market value, at the same time considering the needs of the local community in which we operate. We disclose transparently the information on direct and indirect economic effects our company has on its environment.
- Environmental responsibility is the area which is continuously being advanced, since it is based on internationally recognized systems of environmental management and certification systems, on the use of renewable natural resources whenever possible, constant monitoring of our impact on the natural environment and reduction of negative effects, such as emission of harmful gases or noise.
- Social responsibility is based on the demand to cooperate with all stakeholders, to work on the improvement of life quality of our employees, their families and the whole community in which we operate. It is very important to emphasize the fact that our employees are always our top priority, since we are trying to create a stable and, primarily, safe workplace, which also refers to our subcontractors, third parties, visitors and partners.
We are always open to transparent communication with the community in which we operate, take part in the development of the environment we share and cooperate taking into account mutual interests and needs.
