We have developed an environmental management plan that is committed to applying industry-related standards while maintaining quality.

Premix Concrete has designed, developed and installed a state-of-the-art water recycling system in its plants, which is used to recover and recycle water for washing trucks at the end of a shift.

The system was inspected by the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA), and their feedback indicates that the system is an excellent example of recycling water. Premix Concrete has adopted an environmental focus in other areas such as the recycling of returned concrete into landfill blocks, steps taken to control dust emissions as well as using fuel efficient trucks.

Its efforts have been recognised by the Cement Concrete & Aggregates Australia Association, which presented Premix Concrete with an Environmental Award for "Most Improved Concrete Plant - 2006". In March 2008, Premix Concrete joined the S1K environmental programme run by Village Green, with the aim of reducing our greenhouse gas emissions, water usage and the energy used within our administrative and workshop buildings.

Other environmental projects in place include developing fleet management and maintenance systems.
