Environmental – Social – Governance (ESG) : three dimensions of a sustainable working environment & Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
In 2021, a sustainable healthy working environment is a fundamental right for every employee. However, sustainable health means more than cleaning an office and paying attention to hygiene. The best working environments approach health from different perspectives to make the positive effect on employees as large and sustainable as possible in the long term. But how do you do that in practice?
The way you can best fill a healthy office is built on the ESG criteria (Environmental, Social and Governance criteria). Many companies describe these criteria in their sustainability approach. When you look for suitable partners, for example when finding the right office environment, the ESG criteria help to test whether the values and characteristics of the office in question are in line with their own values.
At MeetDistrict we have been experiencing for six years now and every day, that our focus on the ESG and CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility), helps companies and governments to choose for our approach and services. After all, we start from a comprehensive vision of health and sustainability that leads to very concrete interventions at our locations.
Our know-how is based on an expertise that we have built up for more than 30 years with the Ghelamco group. This allows us to submit nobility that meet the highest corporate standards in the field of ESG and CSR. Our results are excellent in both areas. National and international customers also praise our user-friendly hands-on approach. In this way, our members can today fully enjoy a reliable (audited) working environment that guarantees health from three large perspectives.
