Partnership with Wienerberger Group


In 2012, Wienerberger, a leading provider of ceramic building materials worldwide and Habitat for Humanity International, a world leader in fighting the housing poverty, signed a partnership agreement to help families in Romania and Bulgaria. It is a multifunctional collaboration involving both financial support and expert and professional support in the form of voluntary time spent by Wienerberger’s employees. The purpose is to ensure the proper use of the products in the homes build by the organization.

In the period from 2013 to 2015, two teams of volunteers from Wienerberger Bulgaria Ltd. and one team of volunteers from the Wienerberger Group from a total of 11 countries participated in the social project of Habitat Bulgaria “Construction of Four Homes in the Town of Kostinbrod for Families with Minor Children and Proven Housing Needs”. Wienerberger and its subsidiaries Tondach and PipeLife, supported the project with the provision of Porotherm ceramic blocks, Tondach ceramic tiles and PipiLife plumbing needed to build the four houses. In addition, the Wienerberger Group provided financial and professional support, such as training in masonry construction activities. By using the energy-efficient building materials of Wienerberger, the beneficiary families of the project can save on utility costs each year.
