Corporate Social Responsibility

Together we can change the world. By continuous improvement of all aspects of sustainability as an integral part of our strategy and of what every employee in our companies does every day — day in and day out.

Sioen PPC is part of the Sioen Group. Being a large international company, we are aware of our social, environmental and economic responsibilities in society. Therefore, Corporate Social Responsibility is an integral part of our company strategy.

Sioen’s Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility refers to “the responsibility a company has when it comes to the effects they have on society, taking into account social, environmental and economic considerations into the overall management” (source). On our dedicated Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) website you can find the many actions Sioen is involved in. Those include sponsorships, sustainable products, the umbrella associations we are part of and the certificates we hold, among others.

Our CSR approach

Our CSR approach is based on four different views. The first one is the United Nations’ 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs), which address the global challenges we face, including poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and injustice. The second view is based on the Triple Bottom Line framework: People, Prosperity and Planet. We have added two more “P’s”: Partnership and Peace. This 5 P’s approach helps us measure our business when it comes to sustainability.

For the third view, we have selected five topics that we call our Sioen Focal Points. The topics that we will give extra attention are: energy, waste, sustainable products, credentials and human resources. Our final view focuses on certificates, memberships and awards. They reflect our dedication to CSR-related themes, and they prove that what we’re claiming are not just hollow words.
