HeidelbergCement releases Sustainability Report

Published by
World Cement,

HeidelbergCement has released its 2013/2014 Sustainability Report, which illustrates the company’s progress in its sustainability targets. Key highlights include a reduction in accident frequency and severity and a 21.2% decrease in specific net CO2 emissions from 1990 levels. The clinker factor decreased to 75.3%.

“Sustainable business practices are a fundamental condition as well as an integral component of our business activities, and therefore central to the activities and decisions of our management teams on the ground,” said Dr Bernd Schiefele, CEO of HeidelbergCement. “The important thing is to minimise the impact of our operations on the local environment, and to utilise our core competencies in a way that contributes to the society at large and generates economic opportunities. With this report, we transparently present our sustainability achievements and targets – and thereby make our performance understandable to our stakeholders.”

This is the group’s first report to be prepared in accordance with the G4 guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and the ‘Core’ option. Also, for the first time, stakeholders were involved in the development of the report and their views on various sustainability issues are reflected in the materiality matrix of the Report.

The report can be read here.
