    Ratings and Rankings

    Sustainability ratings and rankings assess and compare the sustainability performance of companies. They play an increasingly important role in the evaluation of companies in the capital market. More and more market participants are particularly interested in the ESG (Environment, Social, Governance) performance of companies. HeidelbergCement is represented in some of these ESG indices and rankings.

    Social Responsibility

    Good cooperative relationships with the communities in the areas where we are active are indispensable for our business operations and one of the keys to our business success. In these areas, we establish business contacts, capitalise on local know-how, and maintain a dialogue with our neighbours.
