Growing together towards a PURe future
This first Recticel sustainability report results from a journey that began in 2012 to define our strategy for sustainability, which subsequently became embedded in the Group Strategy in 2015. Our aim with this report is to give external and internal stakeholders insight into our sustainability journey, the strategy itself, and its most material aspects. For each of these, we have selected one key performance indicator and target to measure progress.
The report discusses the social, environmental and economic aspects of sustainability and covers the period 2013 - 2015. Recticel NV is headquartered in Brussels, Belgium, and employs on a combined basis (including pro rate share in joint ventures) about 7.598 people in 98 locations across 27 countries. This report focuses on its 100% owned subsidiaries, numbering 57 locations in 20 countries. Recticel intends to publish its second sustainability report in 2018.
This first sustainability report was drawn up in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 guidelines, Core level. This comprehensive framework is widely used around the world for its credibility, consistency and comparability, and is now the de facto standard for sustainability reporting.
