Every year, VINCI Energies Nederland is judged by EcoVadis, the world’s largest and most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings. The sustainability of all VINCI Energies Nederland’s brands – like Koning & Hartman – and business units are assessed on a yearly basis. The Sustainability Scorecard illustrates performance across twenty-one indicators which are grouped in four themes: environment, labor & human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement.
In 2022, Vinci Energies Nederland has scored even better than the year before, making it to the top 1 percent of organisations in its industry. As we are part of the VINCI Group and share this rating, we are thrilled with the result.
According to Eus de Haas, Development Director and General Counsil at VINCI Energies Nederland, Corporate Social Responsibility is crucial to its all-round performance. This conviction is not new: almost 20 years ago, in 2003, VINCI already joined the United Nations Global Compact. VINCI translated the essence of this treaty to eight beliefs of their CSR-charter Manifesto. These beliefs and the VINCI company values combined make up the VINCI Energies Way of Life.
De Haas believes CSR and corporate sustainability should be intertwined with a company’s governance, should be a part of the management philosophy and of the daily life at the company. Sustainable entrepreneurship contributes to Vinci Energies Nederland’s raison d’être and a License to Operate that takes into account society’s expectations. All VINCI Energies Nederland’s guidelines, core values and reports have been assessed by EcoVadis.
Adding to this, De Haas highlights: “All our employees know about our beliefs. They know there are CSR aspects to their work and responsibilities and do their best to fulfil these. Our clients and stakeholders also understand the importance of our convictions: this is clear from the increasing number of questions on this subject during tenders and proposal procedures.”
