Global Industrial Coatings company Beckers Group today published its 2019 Sustainability Report showing the progress the company has made towards contributing to a more sustainable world. A major milestone was set last year: Beckers’ newly launched 2030 Sustainability Strategy sets the frame for the report and describes the actions the company will take in the decade ahead.
The report which can be accessed at https://beckers.link/SR19 gives a comprehensive picture of last year’s activities, underpinning Beckers’ commitment to making sustainability a priority throughout the company and its value chain. Among the highlights are background stories on the multi-national stakeholder workshop, partnering for change with customers and suppliers, the company's climate impact and steps towards circular economy as well as the progress with the social sustainability roadmap, showing first results in improved gender diversity in hiring.
Beckers Group’s Chief Human Resources Officer Judith Jungmann comments: “At Beckers we want to add positive impact in everything we do. We believe that sustainable businesses are more resilient, better prepared for the future and that building a sustainable company now is more important than ever. With our 2030 Sustainability Strategy, we are setting the pace and contributing to transforming our industry.”
Nicklas Augustsson, Global Sustainability Director at Beckers, adds: “We have made significant progress in our sustainability work throughout 2019. Our multi-national stakeholder workshop served as one of the foundations for our 2030 strategy. Our efforts to reduce our climate impact, also in the value chain, show in the switch to intermodal transport wherever we can, and our approach to material and functional sustainability of our coatings is something we have been working on for a long time. With our social sustainability roadmap in place since 2018 we now have great results in employee growth and gender diversity.”
Beckers 2019 Sustainability Report is available in a digital format with five embedded videos, including internal and external stakeholder interviews on sustainability-related initiatives. The report has been prepared in line with the globally recognized GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) standard and serves as Communication on Progress for the United Nations Global Compact, which Beckers is Signatory of.
