Sustainability at Wienerberger is embedded in the corporate strategy and constitutes an integral component of the living corporate culture. This is reflected at all stages of the company’s value chain and supports the healthy basis of the company in a variety of ways: Numerous cost-cutting measures in the use of raw materials and energy result in higher efficiency. Health and safety initiatives and an emphasis on employee satisfaction strengthen our productivity and our employer branding. Sustainability is a source of innovation for new and optimized products. Medium-term supply risks are reduced through sustainable supply chain management.
Our quantitative targets and the measures to be taken in the coming five years have been laid down in our Sustainability Roadmap 2020, which was agreed upon on the basis of the materiality analyses performed in 2014 with input from our stakeholders.
