Weerts group & Environmental, Social and Governance
Weerts Group aims to implement a sustainable growth strategy and to create value through its portfolio of companies with diversified but complementary activities for the benefit of all its stakeholders: employees, customers, shareholders, business partners and society in general.
We are aware of our social responsibility as a company. As such, the best contribution we believe we can make to society is to create jobs and stimulate economic activity in the regions in which we operate.
The many initiatives we have undertaken over the past few years to create an attractive working environment for Weerts Supply Chain employees have enabled us to win the Logistics Employer of the Year 2020 award. This prestigious award by Transport Media recognises a transport and/or logistics company for the quality of its human resources management. It is the integration of the HR function in a global context of change management, in a difficult social environment, that earned us the award.

WELL-BEING AND SAFETY
The protection of health and safety of Weerts Group's employees is essential. We realise that compliance with health and safety standards will necessarily contribute to the sustainability of the Group's services. Weerts Group partners with health, safety and environmental professionals in each business area to build and embed the culture of safety and well-being in the DNA of the Group.
Entreprises de Travail Adapté
Weerts Supply Chain has a collaboration with several adapted work companies. These are non-profit organisations in various locations. In addition to its own employees, Weerts group provides daily employment to approximately 100 employees in our different warehouses in Belgium.
SUSTAINABLE CONSTRUCTION TECHNIQUES
In an effort to reduce its carbon footprint and increase the sustainability of the infrastructure it builds, Weerts Group pledged to undertake BREEAM certification for all its logistic real estate developments starting as from 1 January 2022, targeting an “Excellent” or higher rating.
All already delivered logistic real estate developments will undergo a BREEAM In-Use assessment during 2023.
Unirii View, our office tower project in Bucharest, was the first office building in Romania to complete the BREEAM certification process (in May 2019), resulting in the award of the BREEAM "Excellent" certificate under the BREEAM 2016 version regulations.
