Compliance with national guidelines and rules
Environmental, health and safety rules
In many countries, Wienerberger has to meet extensive and increasingly stringent requirements in the areas of environmental protection, health and safety. Compliance with such provisions, which may require investments in optimization measures, is a matter of course for Wienerberger.
Responsibility lies with local management
In accordance with Wienerberger’s decentralized structure, responsibility for the enforcement of national rules and regulations and for compliance monitoring lies with the respective local management bodies. In line with national legal provisions, compliance officers have been appointed at country level, who evaluate legal compliance and report to the local authorities and the Wienerberger Managing Board. The internal audit unit regularly verifies compliance with this process and reports its findings to the Managing Board and the Supervisory Board.
