Impacts on Lands and Communities

Good Neighbours

Canadian cement manufacturers understand that their operations have the potential to affect the communities in which they operate.

They take care to be responsible about:

  • Social impacts - community well-being, public health and safety, access to public services and landscape aesthetics
  • Occupational health and safety  of workers and contractors
  • Environmental impacts - especially from land use and quarrying, dust, noise, effluent, and traffic

Canada's cement manufacturers address their responsibilities to their communities by:

  • Placing an absolute priority on ensuring a safe and healthy workplace for employees and contractors
  • Avoiding and mitigating local impacts
  • Engaging stakeholders in formal processes to receive, consideri and respond to their concerns
  • Making important financial and in-kind contributions to sustain community well-being, beyond the plant gate
