More Value - Less Impact

Sustainable
Solutions

Sika has a portfolio of technologies and products that combines functional performance with optimized sustainability. The company’s services for its customers are therefore shaped by innovation, reliability, and future viability.

Climate Performance

Among other things, CO2 is a consequence of fossil energy consumption, which can only be reduced by increasing energy efficiency. Sika is therefore working to achieve a climatefriendly future not only through its products and solutions, but also on its own production sites. 80% of Sika’s product portfolio generates a positive sustainability impact for its customers.

Community Engagement

With its program “Sika Cares”, the company is helping local communities to build up and maintain infrastructure for social projects. Important elements also encompass the advancement of education and vocational training, as well as projects that focus on water and climate protection.

Energy

Sika is determined to reduce energy consumption as well as greenhouse gas emissions. This inevitably entails energy efficiency and the replacement of fossil fuels with renewable energies. The use of innovative and resource-preserving technologies has an additional sustainable impact.

Waste/Water?

A key pillar of sustainable development is the sparing and efficient use of materials and water. Here the company scrutinizes the entire value chain, from the use of raw materials and the manufacture of its products through to the disposal of waste.

Occupational Safety

The safety and health of employees must be guaranteed at every site. Targeted programs raise awareness of this issue, making safe, healthy, and attractive working conditions mandatory at Sika’s locations all over the world.
