HeidelbergCement has improved its ESG ranking from the ISS-oekom corporate rating agency to C+. As a result, the company is now one of the sustainability leaders in the construction materials sector and is authorised to use the ISS-oekom Prime Label.
The rating considers environmental performance, as well as governance aspects by evaluating more than 100 sector-specific indicators with grades from A+ (best grade) to D-. Currently, about 700 companies are rated as Prime.
“Sustainability is an important part of our strategy,” said Dr Bernd Scheifele, Chairman of the Managing Board of HeidelbergCement. “We are very happy to be labelled with the Prime status by ISS-oekom. This is clear evidence that we are on track with continuously improving our sustainability performance and reporting, and that we are among the leaders in our industry in this respect.”
