Planet, People and Communities
At Barco, we firmly believe that sustainable business is good business – and vice versa. To that end, we are committed to taking ownership of a sustainable future. Our sustainability strategy (‘Go for Sustainable Impact’) has been an integral part of our corporate strategy for several years now and we are constantly accelerating our efforts.
More than safeguarding the future of our planet, sustainability at Barco also incorporates responsibility to our employees and to the communities in which we operate. For each of our three sustainability pillars – Planet, People, and Communities – we defined an overall ambition statement as well as medium- and short-term targets that guide and motivate us to infuse sustainability across the organization.
"The steps we’ve taken in recent years are a solid foundation. By continuing on this path, we aim to enhance our positive impact and deliver a really bright tomorrow for our ecosystem and the world at large."Dries VannesteSustainability Manager
Our ambitions and targets are linked to the sustainability areas that matter most to our stakeholders and where we can achieve the greatest impact: our material topics.
We will lower the environmental footprint of our customers and further reduce our own footprint.
We invest in sustainable employability by creating the right conditions for our employees to have an engaging, enriching and healthy career at Barco. We do this by encouraging our people to learn and develop themselves and by ensuring a healthy working environment – both physically and mentally. We engage in building an inclusive workplace that embraces the diversity of our people as this boosts our innovation capacity.
We play an active role in the communities we operate in by upholding the highest ethical and quality standards and expecting the same from our business partners. We always aim to deliver added value to our customers through our solutions, services and capabilities. In addition, we help ensure more people can participate in and benefit from Barco’s innovation.
