Our sustainability strategy
Go for sustainable impact
Our sustainability strategy is an integral part of our corporate strategy, ‘enabling bright outcomes’. Integrating ‘go for sustainable impact’ into our corporate strategy was a logical choice for us, as we are convinced that sustainable business is good business.
Our corporate strategy consists of three pillars: planet, people and communities. For each pillar, we have defined an overall ambition statement as well as several focus areas. Those focus areas, 11 in total, are the sustainability topics we consider important for both our business and our stakeholders. They were defined in the 2017 materiality assessment
Our ambition statement
In line with our ambition to fully integrate sustainability into our corporate DNA, Barco has decided to constantly accelerate its sustainability efforts on three levels: planet, people and communities.
- PLANET: We will lower our own environmental footprint and those of our customers.
- PEOPLE: We will invest in sustainable employability by encouraging our people to learn and develop themselves, by engaging them and by keeping them healthy – both physically and mentally. We will create an inclusive workplace that embraces the diversity of our people.
- COMMUNITIES: We will play an active role in the communities we operate in by upholding the highest ethical business standards and expecting the same from our suppliers. We help ensure more people can participate in and benefit from a prospering society regardless of their backgrounds.
