Focus points

The ranking focuses specifically on the way Belgian companies communicate on sustainability efforts and CO2 emission reduction in annual reports, sustainability reports and on their websites. In this light, FINN evaluates the completeness of the company reporting: whether there are clear targets set, concrete measurements, and numeric results. 

FINN highlights the importance of innovation as key to allow companies to grow and at the same time keep reducing carbon emissions. 

With regard to the reporting of non-financial information, the agency express how the new European standards on reporting is a good answer to the need for standardisation in this regard.

Important also the highlight on how sustainability efforts and commitments play an important role in attracting (young) talents.

Our presence in the top 27 companies of this ranking, can be seen as good feedback on the efforts taken to get closer to compliance with the new directive. However, this is just a start!
