* EcoVadis awards Wienerberger a silver medal
* Sustainability ratings have improved significantly across all categories
* Wienerberger is one of the most sustainable companies in the building
materials industry


The Wienerberger Group has made real headway in further improving the
sustainability of its operations in the last twelve months. The latest rating by
EcoVadis, a leading international provider of business sustainability ratings
(ESG Ratings), shows the company has achieved significant progress in all
