2021 Belgian Sustainability Report

A message from our CEO

Dear readers,

Doing what is right for the environment, for the planet, is more than just one small decision – it’s billions of them. And making real change happen begins with each of us and the choices we make every day.

With our Shared Values as the compass guiding our decisions and actions, our organisation has made great strides to tackle the climate crisis head on. In this report, you will read about why we prioritise sustainability, where we are now with our ambitions and where we want to go in the future.

In all of the steps we’ve taken, acting ethically and with integrity while respecting people and caring for the planet was at the heart of our decisions. Because it is both the right thing to do and it is how we make an impact that matters for our people, clients and society.

Our journey began in 2017, when we took a look at ourselves and determined the areas where our business could greatly improve its environmental impact: mobility, travel and infrastructure. With these key points in mind, we have transformed our habits and behaviours to make a significant leap forward in reducing our C02 emissions.

A shining example of this is our evolving mobility needs and routines. Electric and hybrid cars are a lasting trend, and now make up more than 10% of our fleet. As of 2023, every new car ordered will be fully electric or hybrid, and by 2026, our fleet will consist entirely of electric and hybrid vehicles.

For us, sustainability is more than just CO2 reduction or offsetting. Employing a digital-first mindset around all aspects of the business, we are taking steps to reduce waste production through improved recycling initiatives that encourage our people to develop and sustain environmentally-friendly habits.

While I am proud of how far we’ve come in meeting our ambitious targets, there’s still more work to do for us to achieve our 2030 goals. By continuing to work together and prioritising sustainability, we will do our part to ensure a greener tomorrow for future generations to come.

Thank you for reading our sustainability report.
