SUSTAINABLE ORGANISATION

Corporate ethics are essential to Vandemoortele’s activities. At all times, our ethical decisions align with our long-term goals and our commitment to sustainability. Integrity is a key topic in our strategy: we promote ethical behaviour and forbid bribery and corruption. By collaborating with various partners in our value chain, we create a positive impact in terms of climate, human rights, supply chain transparency, and so on.   

PHILIPPE DELSAUT

Chief Legal and Risk Officer

“Sustainable growth means being able to grow your business without compromising its stability, quality, or values. Integrity is very important to us: we promote ethical behaviour and forbid bribery and corruption. Our value chain partners are essential to our sustainable business success.” 

“To minimise our legal risks, I advise Vandemoortele on legal and regulatory issues. Transparent communication is an important part of our approach. To build trust with our customers and suppliers, we share correct information on ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) topics, and we promote our products and our sustainable performance in a correct and responsible way, without exaggerating or greenwashing.”

ENSURING SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS GROWTH

For Vandemoortele, sustainable growth means focusing simultaneously on profitable growth, social inclusion and protecting the environment. These three elements are crucial for the well-being of people and society. Our actions are based on solid data: we monitor customer needs, environmental impacts, associate expectations, new legal requirements and industry trends.

To boost our sustainable growth, we offer excellent service and high-quality products. We develop new technologies and invest in sustainable innovations. Integrity and business ethics are the key principles of our strategy: our grievance mechanism and our whistleblowing procedure allow our customers, suppliers, associates and other stakeholders to report incorrect behaviour.

PARTNERING IN THE VALUE CHAIN

Value chain partners are essential to our sustainable business success. By collaborating with various partners, we create a positive impact in terms of climate, human rights, supply chain transparency, etc. We thoroughly screen our suppliers, and we engage with our stakeholders to identify potential negative impacts of our products or processes.

We focus on transparent internal and external communication, and we share correct information on ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) topics. We promote our products and our sustainable performance in a correct and responsible way, without exaggerating or greenwashing. By communicating clearly and honestly, we build trust with our customers and suppliers.
