Sustainability at Wienerberger is embedded within the very corporate strategy and constitutes an integral component of the living corporate culture. It also serves as one of the main sources of innovation for new and optimized products.
Minimizing the environmental impact of our ceramic production is vitally important for Wienerberger. This includes a responsible way of operating our clay extraction sites, energy efficiency, reduced fresh water consumption, climate protection, increased use of recycled materials and renaturalization of former clay pits.
Made out of natural raw materials our products stand for lasting value, longevity, quality of living and innovative building. Their quality has been extensively tested in terms of eco-friendliness and has earned us plenty of declarations and certifications, underpinning our efforts.
With the aid of Wienerberger a new school in Susumbwe is becoming reality. Since three years, Wienerberger has been backing the NGO "Helping Hands Family" and their efforts to build a school in a small town in Uganda. The school is not just serving the purpose of education but is also utilized as shelter for orphaned children as well as to provide food, water and medical treatment for families in need. The students are being raised to well-educated adults who will be able themselves to help and support their local communities.
WISBA stands for Wienerberger Sustainable Building Academy. WISBA is an educational program Wienerberger organizes and finances for architecture and civil engineering students, who are interested in sustainable building solutions.
