Our mission is very clear: We shape energy-efficient, innovative, and sustainable construction, housing and living. We improve the sustainability of buildings throughout their lifecycle and contribute to a low-carbon, circular and humane (construction) economy. All this with a focus on reducing the CO2 footprint as much as possible.
To achieve this, we reduce the use of CO2-intensive raw materials, increase the energy efficiency of buildings, expand energy-efficient production processes and technologies, and increase the share of renewable energies.
We conserve resources by developing the circularity of our products and continuously improving this. As a producer of building and insulating materials from natural resources, we focus on sustainable procurement of our raw materials.
Sustainable supply chains
Our entire supply chain is characterized by a strong local character, as most of our production sites are in relative proximity to our customers. The same applies to procurement: around 80% of our purchased goods are bought locally - in the country of production.
Focus on innovations
As a solution provider of innovative building and insulating materials, we are continuously developing sustainable and environment friendly concepts. Three quarters of our research investment therefore goes into environmental and climate-related research.
As one of many players in the construction industry, we rely on a wide variety of initiatives and partnerships to promote and implement innovations and greater sustainability throughout the construction sector. Because only together can a climate-friendly construction industry be realized.
