Heidelberg Materials has been recognized with an “A” score by the global environmental non-profit organization CDP for transparency and performance on climate change.

The company follows a transparent, science-based approach to reducing its carbon footprint and has given itself a comprehensive set of ESG targets. Heidelberg Materials is one of only 346 companies to make the CDP Climate A List out of over 21,000 companies assessed.

“We are honoured to be included in CDP’s Climate A List and to be recognized for our efforts in decarbonization, says Dr. Nicola Kimm, Chief Sustainability Officer and Member of the Managing Board of Heidelberg Materials.

“This also demonstrates our Leadership in the industry – both in breakthrough technologies such as carbon capture, utilization, and storage and when it comes to sustainable products. We will continue to drive the transition to low-carbon construction,” he added.

CDP is essential in steering best-in-class developments for transparent reporting, tracking progress, and managing climate risks and opportunities.

Heidelberg Materials follows a clear, science-based approach to reducing its carbon footprint through the levers of product and process innovation and industrial-scale carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS).

With the CCUS projects already launched, the company aims to save 10 million tonnes of CO₂ cumulatively by 2030. Heidelberg Materials has also recently introduced evoZero®, the world’s first carbon-captured net-zero cement and its global evoBuild® brand for sustainable products.

The Sustainability Commitments 2030 are the guiding principles of the company’s sustainability efforts. They reflect a holistic view of sustainability and feature a comprehensive set of ESG targets covering climate protection and topics such as circularity, nature conservation, water management, and resource efficiency.

Sherry Madera, CEO of CDP, noted, “Earning a place on the A-List is about more than the score. It indicates high quality, complete data that equips companies with a holistic view of their environmental impact, serves as a baseline for transition plans and – crucially – enables them to follow through on their ambitions.”

CDP holds the largest environmental database in the world. It is aligned with the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). CDP scores are widely used to drive investment and procurement decisions toward a zero-carbon, sustainable, and resilient economy.

Heidelberg Materials, one of the world’s largest integrated manufacturers of building materials and solutions, with leading market positions in cement, aggregates, and ready-mixed concrete, is a proud member of the Northwest Cement Council.
