Voka rewards Beddeleem for sustainable entrepreneurship
In the botanical garden of Ghent University on Thursday 16 June 2022, under a bright sun and in a great atmosphere, no fewer than 74 companies were literally honoured. Because at Voka East Flanders they believe that anyone who puts effort into sustainability should also get recognition for it.
Beddeleem also received the Charter for Sustainable Business. This certificate rewards companies that implement sustainability in their daily operations and refers to the 17 SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) of the United Nations. Beddeleem successfully completed an action plan for sustainable business operations.
Some concrete actions of Beddeleem in 2021:
- Calculate carbon footprint and develop carbon neutrality trajectory
- Commit to circular economy through Beddeleem Circular
- Further development of Cradle to Cradle
- Ergonomics: sit-stand desks for all employees
- Lifelong learning through Beddeleem Academy
As Belgium's first carbon-neutral construction company, we were allowed to explain our path in the workshops beforehand. And of course, we are currently working hard on the 2022 objectives.
