Mark your calendars for April 22, 2021. We will publish our new Sustainability Report.
Innovation management, basic research, and technological development: This is the foundation on which we position the Xella Group for the future and meeting societal as well as industry-specific challenges – be it climate protection, energy savings, or resource efficiency. Since 2004, we have ther
As a company, we take our economic and social role very seriously and want to be a fair, reliable and trustworthy partner to our customers, business partners and employees. In order to always comply with ethical and legal standards in our business activities and in our dealings with our supply chain
Safety in the workplace is a top priority at Xella. That's why we see it as a matter of course to promote the long-term health of our employees and ensure their safety. We want our employees to go home from work every day healthy and unharmed.
Our employees form the basis of our long-term success. We want to be an attractive employer in all respects. High-quality training at Xella and investments in our employees' qualifications contribute to this, as do fair, performance-based remuneration, a non-discriminatory working environment, and f
Our building materials consist mainly of natural raw materials and are almost completely recyclable. URSA insulation products are already largely made from reused materials. Therefore, the conversion of value chains to value cycles makes sense for us for ecological and economic reasons. The circular
With our recyclable construction and insulation materials, we promote the energy efficiency of buildings and thus contribute to environmental and climate protection. However, to manufacture these products we need natural resources and cause CO2 emissions. To minimize the impact on the environment an
With our business model, we have a high level of positive impact opportunities. To actively leverage this, we sharpened our ESG focus as part of the review of our Sustainability Strategy 2020 and worked out how our strategy can contribute to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Xella Group has joined the world's largest and most important initiative for responsible corporate governance: The United Nations Global Compact. Xella is committed to the ten sustainable principles in the areas of human rights, labor standards, the environment, and corruption prevention.
Xella has a powerful business model with multiple opportunities for a positive sustainability impact. Therefore, we want to actively contribute to a more sustainable development of our society and the economy.
Our mission is to enable energy-efficient, affordable and long-lasting housing - and to provide as sustainably as possible. To achieve this goal and keep improving, we are in constant exchange with our stakeholders.
The reputable ESG rating agency Sustainalytics has given Xella a rating of 18.3, putting Xella in first place out of all 115 companies in the building materials sector assessed by Sustainalytics. Sustainalytics therefore classifies the risk of financial impact caused by ESG aspects at Xella as low.
Xella stands for innovative, safe and sustainable building and insulation materials and is the solution provider for energy-efficient, healthy and cost-optimized construction. Thus, our product portfolio contributes to decarbonization and to a low-carbon construction sector.
Whether autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) powder, which is recycled from production, or AAC from demolition projects, which is recycled according to type, is used in the production of new blocks makes no difference in principle.
What can be used in the recycled end-product and what cannot? The decisive factor for our quality standard in the use of post-demolition autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) is the sorting accuracy.
Xella's cooperation with Otto Dörner and Holcim shows how autoclaved aerated concrete residues are processed and reused in the manufacture of new products.
Xella pursues three circulation models to return autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) residues to the production cycle: This involves residues from production, from the construction site and even AAC residues from demolition and dismantling projects.
For Xella, the circular economy is of enormous importance. The motivation for this are the legal framework conditions of the EU as well as the environmental aspect and the economic factor. The core of the circular economy is the Cradle to Cradle concept.
Johan Vestergaard is technical director at Xella Scandinavia and since June also responsible for sustainability in the Nordic market
Anyone who wants to build or renovate in Austria in a sustainable manner can hardly do without Xella products. This has been proven by the awarding of two renowned prizes.
Ytong and Hebel AAC consists of natural materials, promotes the natural indoor climate and can be returned to the production cycle as a raw material. These characteristics make it particularly sustainable – an aspect that becomes increasingly important also in the construction industry. Sustainabi
Together with our partner company Otto Dörner, Xella Technologie- und Forschungsgesellschaft has started a project to reuse aerated concrete residues from mixed construction waste for the renewed production of aerated concrete.
Almost 400 apartments, a large park, numerous shops and a business pool around "green" companies: Brussels is creating a new, unprecedented and sustainable neighbourhood.
