ESG Ratings and Indices

ESG factors are becoming increasingly important in investment decisions. The market for sustainable investments continues to record strong growth. The interest of our shareholders, financial analysts, and ESG rating agencies reflects this.

Our ESG rating strategy is an important tool that helps us to maintain continuous quality assurance, monitor the market, and identify best practices and optimisation potential. We regularly evaluate the relevance and importance of different ratings. In particular, the performance of Heidelberg Materials in the topic areas of climate, water, and sustainable product solutions was assessed positively in several ratings in 2023.
