1 October 2003    Sustainability acknowledgement

Bekaert selected for new SRI Index

Bekaert has been selected for membership into the new Kempen/SNS Smaller Europe Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) Index, to be launched on 1st October 2003. 

Membership is available only to those companies with the very highest standards and practice in the three areas of business ethics, human resources and the environment. Following extensive analysis, Bekaert passed the exacting standards imposed and considers this new sustainability acknowledgement as recognition of its efforts towards a responsible Bekaert citizenship in the communities in which it operates.
