Climate action from A to Ytong - CO2 reduction at Xella
The construction and building industry is responsible for 38% of global CO2 emissions. This includes both construction itself and the subsequent operations involved. However, half of the emissions already occur in the production and processing of building materials.
In the face of the climate crisis and dwindling resources, the construction industry is faced with the challenge of finding more sustainable solutions. As a leading international solution provider in the field of construction and insulation materials, Xella has taken up this challenge.
"It is our mission to design energy-efficient, costeffective and sustainable construction, housing and living … and by setting clear targets on CO2 emissions, resource conservation, diversity and equal opportunities, our ESG Strategy provides the blueprint to achieve that mission."
