    Complementary Information

    Heidelberg Materials employs two EU Government Affairs Managers supported, where needed, by an Association Manager and local Public Affairs Manager. The majority of Heidelberg Materials employees that are engaged in activities falling under the scope of the transparency register only interact with the EU institutions as part of their broader responsibilities (general management, sales, legal department, etc.) or when their expert knowledge is requested. It mostly involves participation to trade association meetings and third party activities, but may also involve occasional official meetings/events with representatives of the EU institutions. The number of people involved per calendar year depends on the regulatory agenda.
