Our Approach

Our approach to sustainability is about creating a long-term perspective with a relentless focus on sustainable business development.


Sustainability is an integral part of our company strategy, and we work with the ambition to be the preferred partner for sustainable construction. 

As Europe’s leading distributor of heavy building materials, we have a strong focus on ensuring responsible and sustainable practices in the societies in which we operate. Acknowledging our role in the industry, we are committed to reaching net zero emissions by 2050 across the entire business. We work within fully 2030-validated science-based targets to minimise our environmental footprint and are a signatory to the UN Global Compact, where we continue to implement measures to help support the ten principles within Environment, Human Rights, Labour Rights and Anti-corruption.

We help our customers navigate complex sustainable documentation and calculations to meet emerging requirements for reporting lifecycle carbon in their construction projects. To achieve this, we strive to offer best-in-class advice about services and products for sustainable construction, the best range of eco-labelled and energy-efficient products and a low-carbon distribution.

We acknowledge that we cannot reach our goals alone. A sustainable future requires partnerships. Therefore, we work closely with a broad range of customers, suppliers, and partners to develop solutions that are beneficial for both our business and the planet. 

STARK Group is a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact and supports the Ten principles of the UN Global Compact on human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption. The principles are part of STARK Group’s strategy, culture, and day-to-day operations. STARK Group is committed to support the UN’s work to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

We support public accountability and transparency within sustainability and therefore, we report annually on progress within our sustainability framework in our annual STARK Group sustainability report.
