2017 was an economically successful year for Wienerberger, and at the same time the company made substantial progress in implementing the Wienerberger Sustainability Roadmap 2020. The Sustainability Roadmap 2020 represents a deliberate, self-imposed obligation to continuously improve the company’s ecological, social and societal performance; it sets out ambitious targets which are being consistently pursued by the Group. With the Wienerberger Sustainability Report, published for 2017 as a Sustainability Update, the company presents its financial and especially non-financial performance and the impact of the Wienerberger Group’s activities on society and environment, as required by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).
Wienerberger is on a good way here, examples are: Contributions to ensuring responsible production processes and combating climate change. With digitally assisted design processes and construction methods, including products with high thermal insulation properties, Wienerberger makes it easier for customers to meet the requirements of energy efficiency in building construction and helps to make cities and residential areas safe, robust and sustainable. With this commitment, Wienerberger demonstrates that a company committed to sustainability can improve its performance and increase its corporate value.
