A sense of responsibility and innovative spirit for a climate-friendly construction industry

STRABAG is promoting climate protection in the construction industry with its new "Work on Progress" strategy. In concrete terms, this currently includes over 400 sustainability and 250 innovation projects. One particularly effective measure for a climate-friendly construction sector is, for example, the use of CO2-reduced concrete, which can halve CO2 emissions in shell construction. In addition, there is a special focus on the implementation of circular construction, and in the course of this on urban mining, whereby resources are reused and landfill capacities are freed up as a result. Road construction is also becoming more climate-friendly through innovations: Pollutant-reducing asphalt and recycled asphalt make a significant contribution to sustainable roads.

  • The construction sector accounts for around 40% of global CO2 emissions and half of raw material requirements. We therefore have a very special responsibility to shape the future of construction sustainably. Through new ideas and processes, greater efficiency and by harnessing the potential of digitization. We will drive these issues forward together with the Stiftung KlimaWirtschaft - always in dialog with society and politics. And always with our goal in mind: to become the most sustainable construction group in Europe.
