Corporate Responsibility, Sustainability & Environmental Policy

Corporate Responsibility

Keystone’s Corporate Responsibility is the deliberate inclusion of public interest into corporate decision-making. We strive to run our business ethically, responsibly and sensitively for long term success.

Our activities are managed in a safe manner, protecting the health, welfare and safety of everyone involved and encouraging social inclusion in the communities in which we operate.


At Keystone we are committed to the continuous development of our Environmental Management System, working in partnership with our specifiers, customers and suppliers. We are delighted that our investment in sustainability has produced positive results and has greatly reduced our carbon footprint. Keystone is committed to sustainable operations and environmental protection. Being the first lintel manufacturer to be awarded with the ISO 14001 certification proves that we don’t just acknowledge the need for environmental policies – we get involved.
