sustainability

we rather call it sustainable entrepreneurship

sustainability for all stakeholders

At Aalberts, we are no-nonsense, straight-talking, proudly technical people, who engineer mission-critical technologies for ground-breaking industries and everyday life. So it should be no surprise that sustainability has been a concern of ours since 1975 because, well, it’s just common sense.

megatrends shaping our future

From rising sea levels to natural resource depletion, everywhere we look there seems to be an environmental challenge. So, from our position as engineers, inventors and innovators, what’s our take? We identify three equally ground-breaking megatrends prompting structural shifts in our industries where our mission-critical technologies can help.
urbanisation
energy & resource scarcity
internet of things
urbanisation
strong need for comfortable and healthy buildings and sustainable transportation
energy & resource scarcity
saving energy, lowering waste, reshoring and making materials lightweight and durable
internet of things
accelerating breakthroughs enabling autonomous driving, smart buildings, industry 4.0

sustainable impact we enable a clean, smart and responsible future

sustainable entrepreneurship shared value for all our stakeholders

our recognition recognised for the progress we make in various benchmarks

Given our lean and effective structure we only actively participate in the most leading sustainability ratings and benchmarks that are most useful for us and our stakeholders. We rather focus on performance improvement and managing our human, environmental and financial impact. However, the benchmarks help us assessing the topics that are most important to our stakeholders and prioritising our efforts. As you cannot manage what you do not measure, we set KPIs and measure and disclose data accordingly. Obviously, Aalberts did not receive any fines or sanctions related to environmental issues in 2021.

We focus on progress in everything we do. We are relentless in our pursuit of excellence.
Sustainalytics
The approach of Sustainalytics is in line with Aalberts' view on sustainable entrepreneurship: we are recognised by Sustainalytics for our no-nonsense approach and our reliable track record.
CDP
The Carbon Disclosure Project helps us measuring and understanding our environmental impact and managing our risks and opportunities on climate change.
CSA
The CSA approach of S&P Global (previously named Dow Jones Sustainability Index) is data driven and has a focus on transparency. It helps us to see what is of importance for our stakeholders and prioritise our efforts to improve and be transparent on certain topics.
FTSE4GOOD
The recognition we most value is that ethical investors know how to find us better. The index series are designed to identify companies that demonstrate strong ESG practices measured against globally recognised standards.
