Wyckaert signed the social responsibility charter developed by the members of VBA-ADEB (The Association of Belgian Contractors of Civil Engineering Works). That determines the responsibilities of the major construction companies towards their stakeholders and society.

Wyckaert, together with all major construction companies, formalizes three commitments that have been in the company for some time.

1. ensure the well-being of employees
•     prevent risks and promote safety culture
•     giving employees opportunities to develop talents and competences
•     offer dynamic and attractive career opportunities
•     strive for a balanced and sustainable work organization
2. consult with society
•      limiting the impact of our construction sites on the environment, users and local residents
•      offering an integration process for the low-skilled and people from minority groups
•      promote local economy and employment
•      employees as ambassadors
3. sustainable innovation
•      promoting sustainable designs and the use of materials with less environmental impact
•      implement a policy with focus on waste management and energy saving
•      continue to invest in R&D and development of digital technology

By signing this charter we commit ourselves to apply it in our daily activities.

Campaign “More than Building”
Together with the charter, a campaign is launched under the name “More than Building“. The sector will put the various occupations and career opportunities in the construction sector in the spotlight and promote it to future construction professionals. In the coming months, the campaign will highlight the passion for building and the variety of jobs and projects within the sector through various campaigns.
