Responsibility by conviction

As one of the world’s most relevant building and infrastructure construction groups, HOCHTIEF acts on its responsibility toward society and the environment.

The HOCHTIEF sustainability strategy is derived from the Group’s corporate strategy. We want to create, preserve, and grow values. This mindset is deeply rooted in our corporate vision—“HOCHTIEF is building the world of tomorrow”—and our Group’s guiding principles, which explicitly include sustainability as a precondition.

Really green construction—for you!

Our new sustainability brochure presents the broad HOCHTIEF spectrum of sustainable products and services—and the values for which our company stands.

Planning and building in a future-proof way: We show you what we are doing to build projects that are low-emission and conserve resources, to protect flora and fauna, and to make a contribution to society as a whole.

Let our new brochure inspire you!



We see sustainability as a systematic approach to harmonizing economy, ecology, and social responsibility across the depth and breadth of all our business activities with the aim of safeguarding the company’s viability going forward. How the company and its circumstances are perceived both internally and externally plays an important role.

Our responsible actions are aligned with the HOCHTIEF model. We have defined key sustainability focus areas – they are subject to annual internal and external review with regard to business relevance, impacts, and stakeholder interests. We support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and integrated the SDGs that are relevant to HOCHTIEF into our CR program.

Area 1: Compliance
Area 2: Attractive working environment
Area 3: Procurement
Area 4: Sustainable products and services
Area 5: Active climate and resource protection
Area 6: Corporate citizenship
