Jemma Ison appointed as Keystone sustainability manager


Keystone Group has announced the appointment of Jemma Ison as group sustainability manager, to help build decarbonisation into all business operations

Jemma has been with the company for five years, and has played an integral part in developing the Group’s sustainability strategy, which is based on three key sustainability pillars: ‘Our Nature’, ‘Our Resources’, and ‘Our People’.

She has been invited to join the NHBC Foundation Expert Panel and also to work with BSI to support the development of sustainability criteria for construction materials. This will provide clarity to the industry of high quality but low environmental impact products.

Under the Science Based Targets Initiative, Keystone has embarked on a journey of monitoring and improving its carbon emissions and has committed to the ambitious target of becoming net zero by 2050.

‘Keystone is committed to reducing the environmental impact of all Group operations’

Jemma Ison, Keystone group sustainability manager, commented: “Sustainability is a topic I am extremely passional about – both professionally and personally. Keystone is committed to reducing the environmental impact of all Group operations through continued reduction of its carbon footprint and I am focussed on helping the business achieve Net Zero by 2050.

“In 2021, I led the implementation of IG Masonry Support’s sustainability strategy by looking for ways to decarbonise our operations as well as offsetting our emissions to achieve carbon neutral status. I am looking forward to drawing on the learnings of last year to help support all Keystone Group brands on their sustainability journeys.”

‘Investing in our sustainability strategy and implementing affirmative action’

Sean Og Coyle, Keystone Group commercial director, added: “Due to the fantastic progress of IG Masonry Support in its sustainability objectives and the leadership Jemma has shown in the area of sustainability, I am delighted to add the title of ‘Keystone Group Sustainability Manager’ to Jemma’s current role.

“We hope this latest appointment exemplifies Keystone’s commitment to lead the way with innovation in construction and sustainable performance. The Group is passionate about investing in our sustainability strategy and implementing affirmative action, to safeguard our future for all.”
