More Value - Less Impact
“More Value – Less Impact” sustainability strategy

As part of its “More Value – Less Impact” sustainability strategy, Sika has been measuring six parameters for the last five years. In 2018, the targets for sustainable solutions, local communities/society, and energy were met, while in terms ofwaste utilization, water consumption, and occupational safety, the goals were not achieved. The increased number of accidents in the year under review has negatively impacted the 5-year result, whereas between 2014 and 2017 there was a significant decrease of 27%.

Overall Sika was able to reduce the amount ofwaste per ton sold in 2018 by 1.6%. Considering all acquisitions since 2013, Sika could keep the waste rate per ton sold at the same level. The increase in water consumption is mainly caused by acquisitions processed in 2017 which were taken into account in 2018. In the period of 2014 to 2018, the water consumption was reduced by 42%.
