What it means to be a sustainable company

To say that Sioen Industries is a sustainable company is an understatement. The companies' efforts go far beyond sustainability. We see ESG as a source of innovation, competitive advantage and value creation for all our stakeholders. That's why it is one of the cornerstones of our company strategy.

We are in this for the long run. So in order to guarantee for a better future, Sioen Industries made sure that ESG initiatives are seamlessly integrated in the company's overall strategy and vision of 'Protection through innovation' and 'Shaping the future of Technical Textiles'.

Climate change and carbon reduction is at the top of Sioen's and the European Union's agendas. We continuously look into possibilities and invest in solutions to reduce our energy use, and consequently, reduce our carbon emissions.

ESG Approach & actions

Taking actions to reduce our carbon footprint and thus our negative impact on our planet is one thing. But measuring all those initiatives is equally as important. You cannot improve if you don't know what your current impact is. Therefore, we constructed a framework based on 5 pillars, which allows us to take a proactive edge on ESG and to ensure transparent reporting. On the Sioen CSR website and in our annual ESG report, you can read more extensive information on our approach, and the actions we are taking for each one of the 5 pillars.

  1. Environment
  2. Human capital
  3. Social capital
  4. Business and innovation
  5. Leadership and governance
Every year, the Sioen group publishes an ESG report that summarises the company's social, environmental, and economic practices in order to become a more sustainable business. We are aware that this is a work in progress and recognise that we can keep on improving. But we are also proud to show our realisations and would like to thank you for taking this journey with us.
