Our Commitment to Sustainability

The Greatest Challenge

Sustainability is the greatest challenge facing the architectural, building and building supply industries at the moment.
Within Plasmor all aspects of product development, manufacturing and distribution processes and technical innovation are intrinsically committed to the Social, Economic and Environmental elements of Sustainability.

The Greatest Challenge
Longevity and Economy.

Longevity and Economy.

In the building industry, sustainability concentrates on low energy building design, construction using sustainable materials, a built product displaying exemplary energy efficiency and delivering the use of renewable materials. Above all else the built project and its environment must provide sustainability in longevity and economy. In other words, be built to last. Plasmor remain at the forefront of innovative sustainable construction materials with concrete blocks at the forefront of sustainable, long-lasting construction.

Plasmor constantly strive to enhance the Company’s sustainability in a great number of ways. These include employing rail transport wherever possible thus reducing lorry movement, reducing dependency or quarried virgin aggregates, maximising the use of waste, reclaimed or recycled materials and effecting significant energy saving initiatives in both production and distribution activities.
