In this section, we can learn directly from our CEO, Filip Cordeel, about our sustainability journey, the impact it has had on our business, and the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
In 2022, Cordeel Group and its subsidiary companies have accomplished some key sustainability achievements that showcase our efforts towards a more sustainable future as we strive to reduce our carbon footprint and create a better work environment for our employees.
The Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations provide a shared blueprint to achieve a more sustainable future for the planet and people. The 17 SDGs and their 169 sub-goals are a call to action to tackle the biggest challenges we face world-wide.
This section highlights the key risks and opportunities that Cordeel Group is currently facing. Identifying and assessing these factors is crucial for developing an effective sustainability strategy to mitigate risks and capitalise on opportunities.
In 2022, we assessed our most material topics using a materiality matrix for the first time. It helped us to better identify and understand the importance of specific ESG topics for our stakeholders.
Cordeel Group has taken a proactive approach to sustainability, integrating it into our core values and long-term strategy.
To make our mission of “transforming the future as the fastest builder by focusing on innovation to create smart, energy-efficient and low-carbon solutions” more tangible, we defined a number of concrete, shorter-term targets to follow up. In this way, we try to be as transparent as possible in our efforts and impact and will report on these ongoing actions in the next reports.
Clearly defined roles and responsibilities make sure that we achieve our sustainability goals.
