Sustainability & CSR

We take responsibility. For our employees, our clients, for society and the environment. All of our actions are guided by ethical thinking and an awareness of sustainability. Each of our companies contributes to meeting the challenges of a complex world. We believe that Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is not only about working responsibly today, but also about laying a foundation for a life that is worth living for future generations.

It is the responsibility of each and every one of us to treat the earth's resources with care. We have set our sights on meeting the requirements and expectations of our clients without limiting future generations in their ability to prosper. We build efficiently. We act sustainably. And we do so throughout the entire value chain.
Social responsibility
Sustainability & CSR
We believe each and every one of us is part of a bigger picture. We shape the future of our society. This requires an awareness for and an understanding of our fellow human beings. As an internationally active group of companies, we embrace our social responsibility for all of our stakeholders. In doing so, we rely on hands-on support structures. Long-standing initiatives such as our social fund are designed to provide quick and unbureaucratic support for employees in need. Because we’re a family. And a family sticks together.
Economic sustainability

For us, economic responsibility means merging tradition with innovation. We’re proud of where we’ve come from and of our 110 years of successes. But we also move with the times. Always facing the future head on, we have succeeded in remaining flexible, seizing opportunities and establishing ourselves sustainably on the international market: as experts. As partners. As construction all-rounders.

Responsible corporate policy

We communicate our corporate policy transparently and proactively. Continuously improving our quality and safety standards along with our ecological and social responsibilities is a priority. To make this happen, we go beyond adhering to legal requirements, and push the boundaries on what corporate policy should entail. Because sustainable management means facing challenges, solving problems and growing beyond one's own limits.

Quality policy

Long-term success is based on uncompromising quality. Every day, we set ourselves the goal of exceeding our client’s expectations. And we do this with dedication. Our business operations are subjected to a continuous process of ongoing improvement and development. This allows us to optimise productivity sustainably whilst also fostering long-term relationships.

Health and safety

The health and safety of our employees is a key concern of ours. Implementing a carefully designed health and safety management system has enabled us to guarantee adherence to the highest safety standards and ensure the well-being of our colleagues in all areas of our work. Because we believe that the people who work for us are our greatest asset.

Environmental policy

Environmental protection is a core element of our corporate policy. We take responsibility for our entrepreneurial actions. So, we also see it as our duty to minimise our ecological footprint using all technical and economic means possible. We achieve this by constantly adapting our value creation within the context of a life cycle approach. Because progress isn’t only about looking to the forward, it’s also about reflecting on the past.

Social responsibility

Social responsibility is the basis of voluntary economic, ecological and social action. For us, this means going beyond statutory and administrative regulations. We integrate sustainable concepts within our operational activities. We foster the social commitment of our employees. We minimise risks and secure the future-fit positioning of our companies. Because we are all part of a greater whole.
