Heidelberg Materials as a global company strongly condemns this war against the Ukrainian people. As you correctly noted, we fully support all sanctions on Russia and immediately stopped all investments almost one year ago. We operate a pure local business in Russia, on a limited scale and only for local needs. We ensure that our reduced activities in Russia are fully compliant with international and other laws as well as with international human rights standards.
Heidelberg Materials has intensively supported and continues to support Ukrainian refugees, especially in the neighboring countries of Poland, Hungary, Rumania, Bulgaria, and the Czech Republic, and as a global organization.
We continue to monitor the situation on a day-by-day basis.
