In 1873, Johann Philipp Schifferdecker started producing Portland cement – then a completely new building material – with just 35-employees in Heidelberg, Germany. He probably never imagined that 150 years later, Heidelberg Materials would be one of the world’s largest manufacturers of building materials. Read here how it happened.
Dr Robert Habeck, Terje Aasland and Jan Christian Vestre highlighted the importance of CO₂ capture technologies for the industry during their visit to Heidelberg Materials' CCS project in Brevik. The project is groundbreaking globally as it is the first large-scale carbon capture plant in the cement industry. Heidelberg Materials will invest EUR 1.5 billion in CCUS projects by 2030 to achieve net zero emissions.
The new Terminal 3 in the south of Frankfurt Airport is taking shape. The new departure hall is designed to combine functionality with aesthetics. The coloured exposed concrete elements in natural tones create a warm, lounge-like atmosphere. Around 320,000 cubic meters of concrete have already been used. The cement required for this was supplied by Heidelberg Materials.
The Heidelberg Materials Sustainability Commitments 2030 define the key topics and core principles of the future sustainability strategy at Heidelberg Materials. With the Sustainability Commitments we also set ourselves clear targets to be achieved by 2030.
