HeidelbergCement strengthens the Managing Board of the Institut für Bauen und Umwelt e. V. (IBU)

Dr. Jennifer Scheydt, Head of Engineering & Innovation at HeidelbergCement Germany, joined the Managing Board of the Institut für Bauen und Umwelt e. V. (IBU) in June 2021.

According to its own information, the IBU is the world’s largest association of manufacturers and associations in the building materials industry that promotes sustainable construction. The 14 board members represent the approximately 230 companies and associations represented in the IBU. Among other things, the institute operates a cross-industry and independent information system for building products and building components and ensures that the ecological aspect can be included in the sustainability assessment of buildings. Internationally, the IBU is one of the leading program operators for environmental product declarations (EPDs for short) in the construction industry, which declares construction products in accordance with the European standard EN 15804.

“Sustainability is increasingly becoming an integral part of almost all construction activities. Quantifying the environmental impact – and in particular the CO2 footprint – of building products is a key component here,” says Dr. Jennifer Scheydt. “I am therefore very pleased to be part of the IBU board on behalf of HeidelbergCement and to play an even more central role in shaping the topic of sustainable construction in the future.”
