Energy efficient and affordable housing – delivered sustainably

But not only our products stand for sustainability. We as a company also have the goal of making the best possible use of human, natural and financial resources in the interests of a sustainable development.

To protect the climate and the environment, we are pushing energy efficiency and lower-carbon production at our own sites. We are constantly working to improve our recipes in order to reduce CO2 already in the raw materials for our products and to use recycled materials as secondary raw materials. Xella is one of the few companies in the industry that minimizes waste with an established cradle-to-cradle process.

We believe that our influence extends beyond our products and production. As a pioneer, we have the highest level of digitalization in the industry, paving the way for reducing waste and costs in the construction industry.

Our sustainability mission also includes responsibility for our employees, who are the basis for our long-term success. We are committed to promoting their health, professional development and satisfaction in the long term.

We take our role in the economy and society very seriously. We demand ethical business behavior in our actions, in our communications and in our interaction with internal and external interest groups. We have zero tolerance for fraud, bribery and any kind of anti-competitive activities or discriminatory and unethical behavior.
