Wienerberger’s Sustainability Management
Instruments of Sustainable Corporate Governance

Definition of quantitative targets and measures at Group level and for each business unit
The Wienerberger Sustainability Roadmap 2020 sets out specific targets for the Group as a whole and for the individual business units for the period from 2015 to 2020; it defines quantitative targets and spells out concrete measures to be taken.

Management of essential non-financial key performance indicators (KPIs)
Continuous monitoring of essential non-financial indicators
Essential non-financial performance indicators are collected and monitored. In 2007, for example, safety, health & education (SHE) reporting was introduced throughout the Group. Environmental indicators have also been collected systematically for many years. In 2014, the processes for the collection of key environmental indicators were harmonized and laid down in a Group-wide manual on the reporting of environmental indicators.
Responsibilities and monitoring of success
Regular monitoring of success
The main responsibility for implementation and target achievement lies with the operational management and the individual business units. The success of the measures taken is verified through regular monitoring.
