One of our core tenets at Vulcan is being a good citizen and responsible steward of the communities in which we operate. From local community groups and philanthropic organizations to government officials, supply chain partners and Indigenous groups, we believe in being active and engaged neighbors. Our responsibility is to build strong relationships that support strong communities.

We regularly hold open and productive dialogue with our stakeholders and community neighbors as soon as we begin the permitting process. This open communication continues throughout site operations to help build trust and understanding. It is important to us that our neighbors know we are committed to being a responsible partner within our communities.

We also know that being a good neighbor and citizen is not just essential to maintaining our social license to operate — it is the right thing to do. Through volunteer hours, team member engagement and both material and financial donations to organizations in need, we create meaningful change in the communities in which we operate.
