Ratings and Rankings

ESG factors are becoming increasingly important in investment decisions, and the market for  sustainable investments is growing steadily. The interest of our shareholders, financial analysts, and ESG rating agencies reflects this.

In 2022, we developed an ESG rating strategy that describes our future direction and successful positioning in the ESG ratings market. We provide data to rating agencies such as CDP, ISS ESG, MSCI, S & P, and Sustainalytics, and regularly analyse and evaluate the relevance and importance of different ratings. They are a valuable tool for identifying best practices and optimisation potential. In particular, the performance of Heidelberg Materials in the categories of environmental management systems, stakeholder dialogue, and business ethics was assessed positively in several ratings.


In the CDP sustainability rating, Heidelberg Materials received a classification of B for Climate Change and A- for Water in 2022.
