As a socially responsible company, Drake Materials supports the idea that society must live with the impacts of its businesses. As such, we view our role as more than a profit center. We are also a place where employees spend a significant amount of their waking lives, developing relationships and deriving benefits to support their families. At Drake Materials, we acknowledge our impact on the world around us and recognize that our ability to operate successfully is inherently connected to our performance as a responsible corporate citizen.
Drake Materials judges its success by the triple bottom line of economic, environmental, and social performance. This philosophy acknowledges that profit is a valid pursuit which, in fact, motivates people to create value with the most efficient use of finite resources.
A business that cannot succeed financially has no other business. At the same time, we have responsibilities beyond pure profit. The nature of our business impacts the environment and the lives of people in and around it, and we must address those impacts while seeking financial gain.
