HeidelbergCement has received top sustainability ratings. Formerly known as the Carbon Disclosure Project, CDP is an international non-profit organisation and one of the most important sustainability ratings for the capital market.

HeidelbergCement has received scores of A- in the categories of “climate change” and “water”, as was also achieved in 2017. Thus, the company has taken the leading position in the cement sector.

Rating commitment and transparency with respect to environmental and climate protection, with scores ranging from A to D-, CDP ratings aim to promote competition in the area of sustainability, as well as encouraging corporates to set ambitious environmental protection targets. About 7000 companies provided data on their actions regarding climate change, water security, and deforestation.

“We are proud that we maintained the leadership position from the previous year,” said Dr Bernd Scheifele, Chairman of the Managing Board of HeidelbergCement. “This is a strong confirmation that we are on the right track with our Sustainability Commitments 2030. The excellent result encourages us to further reduce our ecological footprint across all business lines and on a global level.”
