Bekaert_sustainabilityAt Bekaert, we recognize that our commitment to sustainable profitable growth has to take into account the broader economic, environmental and social impact of our operations. We therefore consider the interests of customers, employees, shareholders, communities and other stakeholders in all aspects of our operations.


Bekaert’s global Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy is centered on four main pillars, namely our responsibility in the workplace, in the marketplace, towards the environment and towards society. Our CSR efforts and activities are therefore focused in such a way that balanced consideration is given to the interests of all respective stakeholders, i.e. employees, customers, shareholders, partners, local governments and the communities in which we are active.

Sustainable manufacturing requires an ongoing process of improvement, a process which we continue to pursue in the next years.

Bekaert's group-wide CSR report  is based on the GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) G3 guidelines regarding the GRI Sustainability Reporting Framework. Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is a non-profit organization that promotes economic sustainability. Bekaert's responsible performance in 2014 has 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.
