NEW TERCA TEAM GETS GREEN LIGHT
Underlining its commitment to sustainable building solutions, Terca has
formed a specialist team responsible for strengthening the company's
green credentials and meeting customers' future environmental
objectives.

The new 'sustainability group' will develop a range of initiatives aimed
at further minimising Terca's impact on the environment and increasing
energy efficiency. One of the team's key objectives will be to develop a
range of bricks made using materials from alternative, recycled and
secondary sources (MARSS).

"Forming the sustainability group ensures we can proactively develop our
'green strategy," said Anthony Wood, Terca's environmental manager and
leader of the sustainability group. "By continuously reviewing and
implementing new initiatives, we believe we can play a critical role in
helping to deliver the sustainable communities and built environment of
the future.

"Developing more eco-friendly bricks is just one of our aims. We will
also be working closely with our nine manufacturing plants to further
improve their environmental strategies and performance. For example, we
are going to implement 'green brick awards' that will recognise
exceptional environmental management by factory teams. Michael Driver,
director of the Brick Development Association, will help to judge the
awards with assistance from Terca's technical experts. The winning team
will receive a cash donation for a local environmental charity of their
choice."

To provide customers with further information on its key environmental
initiatives, Terca has also produced a 'sustainability brochure', which
is available to download from www.wienerberger.co.uk
