            Marshalls and sustainability

             When you choose Marshalls, you are safe in the hands
             of the industry leader, committed to developing
             its products in a sustainable manner. At Marshalls,
             sustainability is about producing environmentally
             and ethically responsible landscaping materials.
             For further information about how Marshalls puts its commitment to sustainability into action,
             see the dedicated website at

             Here are just some of the many things Marshalls is doing from an environmental perspective:
             •   Marshalls innovative manufacturing has reduced the carbon imprint of all its block paving
                 products by a massive 39%
             •   Marshalls uses waste products from other industries in the manufacturing process.
                 For example, china clay waste, steel slag waste, recycled concrete waste and slate waste
             •   Marshalls changed the plastic used to shrink-wrap products to one which works at a lower
                 temperature – so it requires less energy
             •   Marshalls uses special software to reduce the times its lorries drive anywhere empty
             •   Marshalls restores its quarry sites (so well that at one site Sand Martins have returned to breed)

             Biodiversity Benchmark Award
             Since The Wildlife Trust gave their first ever Biodiversity Benchmark Award
             to an active manufacturing site, Marshalls Maltby Works has been visited
             several times by the BBC, including Springwatch in 2008.

             Inspired by this and other conservation projects, Marshalls went on to
             receive a National Gold Award for Environmental Best Practice at the
             prestigious International Green Apple Awards.

The Ethical Trading Initiative
Among UK hard landscaping companies, Marshalls pioneered membership of the Ethical Trading
Initiative (ETI). Adoption of the ETI Base Code is gradually establishing new standards of working
practice that will benefit previously exploited workers in the natural stone industry of India.

   ETI Base Code
   •   No-one should be forced to work
   •   Workers should be able to join and form trade unions
   •   Working conditions should be safe and healthy
   •   Child labour should not be used
   •   Wages should be enough to live on and provide some
       discretionary income
   •   Workers should be treated equally regardless of their sex, ethnic group,
       religion or political opinion
   •   Where possible, workers should be provided with regular employment
   •   Workers should not be verbally, physically or sexually abused or disciplined
                                                                                                               Workers in India are provided with

Marshalls is also pledged to fund the work of Hadoti Hast Shilp Sansthan (HHSS), a voluntary
organisation helping to transform the lives of migrant workers in the quarries of Rajasthan.
Marshalls funding has also provided health insurance to more than 200 workers and made a
substantial impact with a health camp offering check-ups, free medicines and vaccinations.

Marshalls is leading all companies

in being the first to measure carbon
emissions of all the products it
manufactures and publish each
carbon footprint                                                                                         gardens & driveways

Working with the Carbon Trust
A standard method has been developed by the Carbon Trust to calculate embodied carbon
emissions of products and services across all industries. As the communication of standard
carbon footprints becomes widespread, consumers will be able to make an informed choice
about the environmental impact of almost any product they buy.

Marshalls enthusiastically supports the Carbon Trust’s Carbon Reduction Label scheme
and indeed is the very first company to publish a carbon footprint for all of the domestic
products it manufactures.

The carbon footprint is the sum of the carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gasses created by a
single unit of product during its life from production, through the supply chain, to use and disposal.

Independently certified carbon emission values will appear on each product page shown
as a clear carbon footprint label, and a column in each product table.*
Unit values will be based on the typical units of use, for example:
Per m2 = 1 square metre
Per m = 1 linear metre
Each = per unit
*Certified by The Carbon Trust

                                                      From 1st October 2008 the permitted development rights for

     Marshalls, proud sponsor and exhibitor
     Marshalls was delighted again to be the principal sponsor of the
     RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2008. The premier showcase of great
     garden design and construction.

     Once again the drama and excitement of world-class garden exhibits
     brought out the great, the good and the glamorous, to see and be seen
     at Chelsea in 2008. Over 150,000 visitors thronged the nine acre site of
     Chelsea Hospital Gardens for the most exciting week in the world’s
     gardening calendar.

                                      Marshalls is proud
                                      to sponsor the RHS

                         really want”
                         How do we get youngsters interested in their garden? This was the idea behind Marshalls
                         Chelsea Show Garden exhibit in 2008. We thought it should be inspired by kids, so we got
                         them involved.
                         We engaged TV gardeners Sven Wombwell and Chris Collins to visit schools and enthuse them
                         and in turn the kids’ ideas inspired our designer Ian Dexter to create a wonderful interactive
                         garden, hence its name “The garden that kids really want”.
                         Marshalls is working with the Royal Horticultural Society to fulfil their aim to have 10,000
                         primary schools signed up to the Campaign

      A garden to suit your lifestyle

      If you’re thinking of transforming the garden, a good question to ask is:
      “What do I want the garden for?” Is it for lazing in? Entertaining in?
      Pottering in with a cup of coffee in one hand and a trowel in the other?
      Growing food and flowers?

      With Marshalls, anything is possible. Here are just some of the many
      garden styles which, our surveys show, reflect the aspirations of people
      just like you.

                      This multi-level garden, bounded by mature planted borders
                      just needed rejuvenating to bring it back to life:

                                    with Marshalite Rustic Walling. A sympathetic contoured patio

                     This combination of Driveline 50 Bracken and Burnt Ochre colours

                         emphasises the strong colour combination
