Evaluation per industry

The challenges in terms of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and sustainability are largely the same for all the industries: they are defined by comparable business risks and the same sensitivities for the stakeholders.

That is why the assessment is conducted per industry. For each of the sectors, the most relevant of the 38 criteria are selected and assessed.So some of the 38 criteria are 'activated' and others are 'deactivated'.

This makes it possible to adequately take into account the extent of exposure and specific opportunities and risks. For the chemical industry, for example, the evolution of the health and safety policy at work will be quite important, because it affects the exposure to toxic and hazardous substances. Weak prevention and an inadequate safety policy can affect the human capital, cause operational interruptions and can also have legal consequences and, eventually, affect the reputation of a company.
