Corporate Social Responsibility
Economy – Ecology – Society
Being sustainable means thinking and dealing responsibly over the long term. This principle forms the basis of our corporate policy – ultimately, the buildings constructed using our materials will outlast several generations and greatly influence the health and wellbeing of the people who live in them. Xella’s tradition and corporate culture are synonymous with the preservation of values and the concurrent pursuit of environmental and social progress.
Xella products are sustainable both in manufacture and use. They also undergo a process of continuous development. Our products therefore make an important contribution to the construction of energy-efficient, high-quality buildings and consequently also to environmental protection and the conservation of resources. Our products have received numerous awards and certificates for their environmentally friendly characteristics.
To Xella, sustainability means more than simply bringing energy-efficient and environmentally compatible products to market. Sustainability is also about production and management, human resources, compliance and research as well as innovation and the environment. To Xella, sustainability is not only about saving energy – long life products, recycling and certification aspects are of equal importance.
Xella’s commitment is not just limited to products and processes; it also extends to social responsibility. We have supported the promotion of young professionals for many years, for example through student competitions and continued training for employees. We also support a wide range of social projects in many different countries.
