Sustainability and social responsibility
The Aalborg Portland Holding Group has a long tradition of socially and environmentally responsible behaviour in the countries in which it operates. The Group is committed to making significant contribution to realising society’s climate goals and therefore invests substantial amounts in continued environmental improvements. Cement production in Aalborg takes place in symbiosis with city and society. For example, heat from production provides district heating for 20,000 households in Aalborg. And in 2018 more than 700,000 tonnes of alternative raw materials and fuels from industry and society – an increase of 10% on 2017 – were utilised in cement production in resource-efficient partnerships.
The Group’s cement plant in Aalborg (Aalborg Portland A/S) publishes a detailed annual environmental report – Environmental Report 2018. Besides presenting policies and results achieved, the report describes the company’s environmental, energy and health & safety management systems and its certifications. The APH Group’s Statutory Report on Corporate Social Responsibility, cf. Section 99(a) of the Danish Financial Statements Act, can be found in “Sustainability Report 2018” published by the Group’s owner, Cementir Holding. The report is available at www.cementirholding.it.
