We do not only talk about sustainability, we act on it in all areas - from our employees to flora and fauna, from our production processes to final products, from people in need to our clients. Our sustainability strategy constitutes an integral part of the Wienerberger vision.
Our actions taken lead to the achievement of the main targets of the Wienerberger Group by 2023:
The new Solarpark Azewijn Montferland in the Netherlands supplies a large part of the energy needs of the adjacent Wienerberger factories with 17,273 PV panels. The park was realized on a covered landfill site and supplies the factories via a direct electricity cable to its transformer building.
In normal use, the factories use 84% of the green energy generated, the remaining 16% will be supplied to the grid for approximately 1,500 households. A total of 4,750,000 kWh is generated, which corresponds to more than 2 million kg less CO2 emissions annually.
