We consistently and above-averagely invest in best environmental technologies in all sites. This way, we regularly undercut benchmark values in the area of emissions of our factories, and actively contribute to health and climate protection.
We acquire our raw materials in our quarries, sand and gravel pits that are a habitat for plants and animals at the same time. Therefore, we already create habitats for pioneering and other very rare animals and plants, e.g. in our migrating biotope concept, even while producing rock. Additionally, we apply further measures to protect and support rare and endangered species and communities in the scope of our biodiversity projects, such as re-introduction of the partridge.
Compliance with statutory and authority requirements is only the minimum for us.
We take it one step further.
More than 60% of our companies are certified to "Sicher mit System" (systematically safety) already. Industrial safety is a big thing for us.
