Sika’s Sustainability Strategy 2014–2018 is producing a positive outcome. A whole range of new projects in all target areas across the globe provide evidence of what the company can achieve with its approach to sustainability.
Sika's front-line technologies and construction expertise played a crucial role in the successful completion of the Gotthard Base Tunnel. The challenging quality requirements were met through the use of Sika's durable solutions for waterproofing, fire protection, coatings, and concrete and shotcrete production.
Sustainability in construction relates to both new-build and refurbishment projects. As a global market leader in the construction chemicals industry, Sika continuously leverages its growth potential in all target markets through innovation, quality, and service. Sika’s seven target markets are Concrete, Waterproofing, Roofing, Flooring, Sealing & Bonding, Refurbishment, and Industry.
