Ceusters joins United Nations Global Compact
The United Nations Global Compact is the world’s largest initiative in the context of corporate SDG. SDG stands for 17 Sustainable Development Goals, adopted by the United Nations – the successors to the well-known Millennium Development Goals. Each SDG is linked to a series of tangible performance indicators to be achieved by 2030. ‘As an organisation, Ceusters makes a sustainable commitment and explicitly commits itself to continue to contribute to the realisation of these development objectives.’, CEO Ingrid Ceusters explains.
As a business built on family roots, Ceusters is convinced that the business world needs to join in the search for solutions to the enormous challenges our planet is facing: in terms of gender equality, good health and well-being, quality education, climate change, decent work and economic growth. ‘We have therefore embedded sustainable development into our strategic vision. This means that we explicitly place an emphasis on the long term and on responsible behaviour and that we pay constant attention to the interests of all stakeholders.,’ Axel Ceusters passionately adds. The path that was mapped out also ensures the commitment of every employee within Ceusters. During dedicated (interactive) workshops, every employee gets the chance to help shape the company’s sustainability vision based on their own expertise. This allows them to define the aspects on which Ceusters can have an impact as well as their priorities.
Axel Ceusters: ‘As a strong, profitable and sustainable company, Ceusters wants to make an essential contribution to various social objectives. The company does not only want to work on the technical side of sustainability, but also strongly believes in its social impact and partnerships. The goal must not be purely to achieve financial success. Responsibility is, and always will be, a strong guiding value at Ceusters. This philosophy is fundamental to business success and enables the organisation to mitigate risk, create long-term value and earn the trust of all customers, business partners, shareholders and employees, and therefore the communities in which the organisation operates.’
The United Nations Global Compact is a strategic initiative that supports companies worldwide who are committed to corporate responsibility. For the companies, these SDGs are translated into an ESG strategy, where ESG stands for ‘environment,’ ‘social’ and ‘governance.’ ‘These values have been firmly ingrained in the DNA of the organisation for years. Nevertheless, Ceusters wants to intensify its efforts in the coming period, along with all its employees and partners, in order to go one step further and guarantee a bright future in the long term.’ Ingrid Ceusters concludes.
