Titan America is committed to making the world a better place for present and future generations. Our vision is that of a sustainable world for growing populations and higher living standards. Sustainable means having 1) a long functional life, and 2) a small lifecycle environmental footprint.
Concrete structures achieve both. They have the longest lifespan of all types of construction and the smallest environmental footprint over their long lifecycles. Our goal is to continuously improve this to a) increase the life of concrete structures even further, and b) reduce the lifecycle environmental footprint of concrete structures to zero or net positive.
This requires continuous education, innovation and investment. It is not a straight line, as out of ten ideas or initiatives, one or two may be ultimately successful. It requires participating in and contributing to industry-wide initiatives. It requires collaborating on win-win programs with government that encourage and reward innovation and risk taking. It requires collaborating with other segments of the construction and structures value chain. It is a never-ending marathon, not a periodic sprint.
We are committed to this process and have the support of a parent company that has been in the industry for more than a century with a long term vision of the business.
