HeidelbergCement has strengthened its commitment to climate protection by joining Foundation 2° (Stiftung 2°) – a network of entrepreneurs for progressive climate policy. Together with the Foundation 2°, the company hopes to develop cross-sector approaches and concepts for Germany and Europe in order to make climate protection a sustainable and successful business model.
“For the development of a carbon neutral construction industry, we need the right social and political framework as well as strong partners with whom we can also be economically successful on our path to climate neutrality,” said Dr. Dominik von Achten, chairman of the managing board of HeidelbergCement. “As one of the leading companies in the building materials industry, we have been committed to sustainable construction for a long time. Through our involvement in the Foundation 2°, we want to work with other like-minded companies and set the course for a successful, climate neutral future now.”
Sabine Nallinger, managing director of Foundation 2°, commented: “With HeidelbergCement, we are gaining an important partner for corporate climate protection from a particularly relevant industry. HeidelbergCement is leading the way with its innovations in corporate climate protection. Together, we want to advance topics and projects making climate protection a business model even for energy-intensive industrial companies.”
