Sustainability Ambitions 2020
The core components of our sustainability strategy are:
- Energy and Climate Protection
- Alternative Raw Materials and Fuels
- Biodiversity Management
- Local Environmental Impacts
- Sustainable Construction
- Occupational Health and Safety
These topics are summarised in the HeidelbergCement Sustainability Ambitions 2020. Specific key performance indicators and targets help us to monitor and measure our sustainability performance throughout the company.
Other activities can be derived from the structure of our sales markets. For one thing, many regions have only a small number of building materials suppliers in their markets; this is why it is important to maintain transparency and fair competition in these areas. Furthermore, our international presence obliges us to respect cultural diversity and to take regional development into account in all our activities.
We are currently working to update the Sustainability Ambitions. Once this is done, the programme will define our sustainability strategy until 2030.
