Wienerberger’s Sustainability Management
Wienerberger’s Principles of Sustainability
Sustainability embedded in the corporate strategy
Sustainability at Wienerberger is embedded in the corporate strategy and constitutes an integral component of the living corporate culture. Important milestones were the signing of the Social Charter in 2001, the commitment to the Austrian Corporate Governance Code in 2002, the accession to the UN Global Compact in 2003, and Wienerberger’s participation in the foundation of respACT Austria, the Austrian UN Global Compact Network, in 2006.
Focus on sustainable building material and infrastructure solutions
Today, Wienerberger produces and sells a great variety of product and system solutions in the fields of clay bricks and roof tiles, ceramic pipes, plastic pipes and concrete pavers. Our self-imposed commitment to sustainability extends to all phases of the value chain of the Wienerberger Group. The principles relating to the individual fields are described in the chapters on employees, production, products and corporate social responsibility.
