Wietersdorfer anchors sustainability at management level

The Wietersdorfer Group has appointed Stefan Schriebl (50) as its new Head of Corporate Development. Schriebl, who brings with him many years of international management experience in the building materials industry, will be responsible in his new role for, among other things, sustainability and digitalization management at the Carinthian conglomerate with 49 locations in 22 countries worldwide. Against the backdrop of the European Green Deal, his core tasks here include the development of new measures to achieve climate neutrality based on the latest scientific and technological advances. By adding the function of Head of Corporate Development to its management team, the Wietersdorfer Group is intensifying its commitment to the success of the Green Turnaround in industry. The annual budget for the sustainable development of the Group amounts to € 75 million.

Focus on the circular economy and decarbonization

In order to achieve its goal of climate-neutral production by 2035, the Wietersdorfer Group, with its five business areas, will turn various adjusting screws simultaneously. “Digital processes, for example for intelligent networking, represent a very effective lever for the sustainable development of companies, alongside product development and plant technology. As the Wietersdorfer Group, we have set ourselves the goal of actively leading this process as one of the pioneers in the industry,” says Schriebl, who, as Head of Corporate Development, will equally drive external reporting in the area of sustainability and CSR and support the Group’s five business areas from the development to the implementation of digital processes and innovative business models.

From his previous professional positions, Schriebl brings in-depth knowledge from various international management positions in the glass, building materials, refractory and concrete admixture industries. Before joining the Wietersdorfer Group, he worked, among others, at the former BASF subsidiary MBCC Group in Austria as Technical Manager for concrete admixtures and at the refractories manufacturer RHI Magnesita as Senior Vice President for Research and Development in Europe.
