Ballast Nedam recognises how important CSR is for the organisation and implements its CSR policy throughout the company on a national and international level. We focus on creating a clear organisational structure, setting up and maintaining an efficient management information system and taking concrete, relevant actions that contribute positively to our organisation, stakeholders and environment.
Our actions have an impact on the world of today and tomorrow. As an organisation we are well aware of this fact. We address our responsibilities in this area in an integrated way by acting in accordance with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Corporate social responsibility is therefore more than an ambition – it is a framework for action. This framework supports the implementation of our CSR policy by aligning Ballast Nedam’s core values (themes) with the SDGs. The SDGs are 17 Global Goals that aim to ensure that by 2030 the world we live in will be a fair, healthy and safe place for all.
Ballast Nedam’s CSR policy is aligned with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and International Labour Organisation (ILO) standards.
