Lafarge Tarmac is a relatively new name in the construction products market. The firm, equally owned by Lafarge SA and Anglo American PLC, began trading in January 2013 but it enjoys an unrivalled heritage, combining over 150 years experience in the built environment.
Since then, IMS Consulting has been working closely with the company to assist in the development of its new sustainability strategy. As well as advising on the implementation of developed objectives, IMS also designed and facilitated workshops for each of Lafarge Tarmac’s business units.
The objective behind this work was to test the strategy, while developing meaningful targets that Lafarge Tarmac will deliver over the next five to ten years. Dr Martyn Kenny, Sustainability Director at Lafarge Tarmac, takes up the story:
“There are two things IMS brought to the party, knowledge and experience of the built environment and the construction market and expertise in sustainability strategies. These elements enabled us to get a new objective view on things. IMS can act as a ‘critical friend’ to help deliver the ideal critical outcomes of various work flows. This is invaluable in helping us to verify and in some cases expand on the key focus areas of our work.”
