The Belgian Chambers win Voka Charter Duurzaam Ondernemen – Actions for a fairer, greener, more sustainable future
With the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the critical framework they provide, the Belgian Chambers have succeeded in implementing concrete actions to contribute to a fairer, greener and more sustainable future.
The Voka Charter Duurzaam Ondernemen (VCDO) by the Flemish Chambers is another important step in the process. To win the title of SDG Pioneer, businesses have three years to carry out actions to achieve all of the SDGs. The action plan will then be evaluated by an external committee.
All Flemish Chambers have taken the leap so far and developed their own action plan. In the meantime, the Walloon Chambers have also laid the groundwork of their own initiative. In 2020, the Federation also decided to embark on the adventure, with the aim of becoming an SDG Pioneer Certificaat winner by 2024.
On 22 March, the Federation successfully completed the first part of its action plan and was awarded the title of VCDO Laureate 2022!
