Here you can find information on the Wienerberger 2010 sustainability report.
This second sustainability report issued by Wienerberger covers the group’s activities during 2010. Indicators are also provided for 2007, 2008 and 2009 to present a four-year trend. 2009 marked the publication of the first Wienerberger sustainability report, and plans call for regular reporting on the company’s sustainable development in the future. The sustainability report focuses primarily on the ecological and social aspects of Wienerberger’s activities. Information on the financial development of the Wienerberger Group is provided in the annual report, which is scheduled for publication at the same time.
The content of this report is based on the fully consolidated subsidiaries in the wall, roof, facade and pavers product groups (including Semmelrock). Any deviations from this scope are indicated in the respective sections. In 2011 sustainability reporting will be expanded to also include the Steinzeug-Keramo Group.
Recommendations to select the subject areas and indicators for this report were made by the respective Wienerberger working groups and the sustainability officer. The Wienerberger Sustainable Development Steering Committee (SDSC) was responsible for the final selection. The company’s objective is to meet the requirements of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI, www.globalreporting.org
The data presented in this report are based primarily on internal statistics. Individual subject areas were validated by an external auditor, e.g. the content and indicators on energy consumption and emissions as well as occupational safety and health, information on the Environmental Action Plan and the Safety Initiative 2010 and the calculation of the energy performance of a traditional brick building. The underlying sustainability management as well as the processes used to collect data and implement the sustainability strategy were also verified. This sustainability report reaches the GRI B+ level.
