Sustainable business in the construction industry – a clear competitive advantage.

Long-term economic success underpins every corporate activity at PORR. Here we are involved inconstant dialogue with our stakeholders and always keep an eye on sustainably increasing thecompany’s value. The following points form the basis and contribute to the achievement of our goals:

  • Our five Principles provide the basis for conduct that is morally, ethically and legally sound
  • Fair competition and upholding the law as overarching priority
  • Risk management and customer focus
  • Fair and constructive cooperation (PORR Code of Conduct)
  • Ensure a sustainable supply chain


The local economy – our contribution.

PORR makes an important contribution to local economic development in its seven home markets. This is realised through local branch offices, creating and maintaining jobs at home and abroad, investing in research and development, giving preferential treatment to local suppliers when choosing partners, and through taxes and social security contributions.

With projects in road construction, tunnelling, and building power plants, railways and bridges, we help to improve public infrastructure. We enrich communities through our building construction projects like schools, hospitals or residential buildings. What’s more, we draw on our Green Finance Framework when realising projects in order to reduce our environmental footprint.

Responsible enterprise – we safeguard social and environmental standards throughout the supply chain.

The many layers of suppliers and subcontractors make the construction industry’s supply chain a complex one. This runs the risk of a lack of transparency. At PORR, social, environmental and quality standards must be upheld throughout the entire supply chain. To achieve this, we are in constant close contact with our suppliers and service providers. Our goal? Safeguarding sustainability throughout the supply chain.

Here all processes are consistently optimised. From the first contact with a potential client via the tender and construction phase through to handover, our focus is on working together with our cooperation partners. We prize stable, long-term supplier relationships and local procurement.

Fair and transparent behaviour is our top priority. The Code of Conduct for employees and the one for business partners apply throughout the entire value chain.
