ROCKWOOL Benelux has received recognition for sustainability efforts in commitment to doing business in an honest and responsible way, something that has been recognized in the annual “Transparency Benchmark” report commissioned by the Dutch Government, which was published on 19 November 2015.
ROCKWOOL Benelux and its operating companies were named among the top-five most sustainable companies in the Netherlands in several key sectors including construction, food, and retail. Compiled by Ernst & Young, the study offers a valuable insight into how companies carry out their corporate social responsibility activities. The results reflect the qualitative and quantitative development of large Dutch companies’ efforts over time.
Hannie Stappers is happy to see the company’s progress being recognized: “As one of the most sustainable solutions providers in our industry, we believe that the execution of our CSR strategy gives us a real competitive advantage. What we do sustainably today is Built In to create extra value in our business tomorrow, and strengthens our position within the value chain in which we operate. It is very much about securing tomorrow’s business.” Among the criteria used to compile this year’s ranking were: business model, financial results, management approach, reliability, responsiveness, and coherence
ROCKWOOL Benelux boosted its overall performance across the board, earning 167 points out of a possible 200, an improvement of 10 points over its score in the same study last year.
