At Cockburn Cement, our goal is to exceed relevant environmental regulations and to be a good neighbour by minimising the impact of our operations on local residents.

Our environmental activities cover three key areas - marine, land and air. We have a particular focus on implementing environmental improvements at our Munster site because of the residential encrouchment getting closer to the plant. Several thousand people now live in neighbouring areas that were very sparsely populated when our Plant was established in the early1950s.
