We care for our environment

The three environmental pillars of our sustainability strategy:

We don't talk. We act:

Solar energy

More than 17,000 photovoltaic panels supply a large part of the energy needs

Uttendorf demonstration plant

Reducing gas consumption by a third through waste heat recovery

15% less CO2 emissions by 2023 as compared to 2020

Green electricity at our sites and technological innovations along our entire value chain pave the way to minimizing CO2 emissions. Climate-neutral bricks and photovoltaic roof riles are just some of the many innovative products we offer/are working on.

100% recyclable or reusable Wienerberger products

In order to ensure long-term availability of raw materials, increasing our amount of recycled or secondary raw materials used in production is of great importance to Wienerberger. 

The results: Longer Life Cycles, Lower Material Consumption, Environmental Benefits.

Supporting flora and fauna

To maintain and increase biodiversity as much as possible, we created the Biodiversity Action Plan which will be implemented to all our production sites by 2023. By avoiding hazardous substances in our production processes, replenishing clay extraction sites and developing recyclable and environmentally-friendly products, we do our best to provide habitats for flora and fauna.
