How we deliver Social Value

Social value is the positive impact that our actions, products, and projects have on society. To fulfil our purpose of "Making the world a better home", we must create value for society through our expertise in light and sustainable construction, and in our approach to business. This means making sure our products have the least impact on the environment, and give the most comfort to the end user, and much more. 

The Social Value agenda is an integral part of the wider Sustainability transition. Our business cannot be successful without a society that functions effectively. And we cannot deliver on our Purpose to Make the World a Better Home unless we also deliver value to society. A sustainable built environment, offering safe, secure homes and buildings that allow people to thrive, is essential to future prosperity, health, and well-being.
