CSR 2015 Bekaert
Bekaert’s Sustainability Report 2016 was conducted according to the GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards. Bekaert’s responsible performance in 2016 has also been recognized by its inclusion in the Ethibel Excellence Index (ESI) Europe - a reference benchmark for top performers in terms of corporate social responsibility based on Vigeo’s research - as well as in Kempen SRI. In 2016, Bekaert was awarded a silver recognition level from Ecovadis, an independent sustainability rating agency whose methodology is built on international CSR standards. In response to growing interest throughout the supply chain to report on the carbon footprint of operations and logistics, Bekaert also participates in the Climate Change and Supply Chain questionnaires of CDP (formerly known as the Carbon Disclosure Project).
