An Overview: Sustainability at Wienerberger
Sustainable solutions require a look at the bigger picture. Sustainability is firmly rooted in Wienerberger’s company strategy.
What makes a company successful in the long term? Acting responsibly, improving people’s quality of life and ensuring that future generations have the same opportunities as we have today. This is why we consider the bigger picture when managing our business: our goal is to improve quality in the Wienerberger Group in a sustainable manner from an ecological, social and economic perspective.
In Wienerberger’s Sustainability Roadmap 2020, we pursue ambitious goals. As a result, we have established four key areas at the center of sustainability: Employees, Production, Products and System Solutions as well as Social and Societal Commitment. Our Sustainability Strategy 2020+ will focus on decarbonization, the circular economy, and biodiversity, amongst others. The Sustainability Program 2020+, which comprises targets and measures in these thematic areas and replaces our Sustainability Roadmap 2020, will enter into force at the beginning of 2021. Thereby, we are not only renewing our self-imposed commitment to continuous improvement of our ecological, social, societal and economic performance, but also have undertaken to make a contribution to the “European Green Deal”.
By signing the UN Global Compact in 2003, we committed ourselves to implementing the ten principles of human rights, labor standards, environmental protection and the fight against corruption – not only at Wienerberger, but along the entire supply chain.
