Sustainability and entrepreneurship are in our genes
Sustainability is high on the agenda at Wyckaert. We want to do business in a socially responsible way with respect for people and planet. That is why we go beyond our statutory obligations on an ethical, social and environmental level.
We strive for sustainability in a realistic and balanced way, with the 5 P’s: Peace, People, Planet, Prosperity and Partnership as a frame of reference.
And although our engagement is wide-ranging, we realise we still have a long way to go. That is why we want to keep evolving, with full transparency and openness towards our stakeholders.
