The world is undergoing profound change. With its building materials and solutions, HeidelbergCement has been contributing to global progress for 150 years. Now the time has come to take the next step and lay the foundation for the future. That is why, during 2020, HeidelbergCement adopted its corporate purpose: “Material to build our future”.
With this play on words, we emphasise our intention both to develop and produce innovative (building) materials for the future and to play a pivotal – that is to say material – role in the future. Responsibility for the environment is at the heart of HeidelbergCement’s actions.
The company has set itself the goal of being the industry leader on the path to carbon neutrality. HeidelbergCement is known for long-term profitability thanks to operational excellence, engagement, and openness to change as well as its close partnerships with customers and stakeholders.
