How can we create affordable and climate-friendly living space? How can plastic pipes be optimally recycled? And how can abandoned clay pits be turned into a valuable asset for nature? These are questions we deal with every day at Wienerberger. We comply with international standards and invest in ESG (Environment, Social, Governance).

Decarbonization, Circular Economy and Biodiversity

Our commitment to the environment is based on three pillars – biodiversity, circular economy and decarbonization. By 2023 we will introduce biodiversity programs at all sites and all new products and system solutions will be completely recyclable or reusable. In addition, we will continue to reduce CO2 emissions – by 15 % compared to 2020.


Social Responsibility in Practice

We are committed to the principles of good corporate governance and transparency and to benefiting society. To this end, we support social projects and organizations and work together with local partners. One example is the partnership with Habitat for Humanity, which each year provides sustainable housing for some 1,000 underprivileged people.

Sustainability is a core element of Wienerberger’s strategy: We build infrastructure and buildings that last for generations. We care about the environment and strive to use natural resources sustainably. We support social projects for the underprivileged. This is our way of shouldering responsibility and we actively adhere to ESG standards.
