Vanbreda recognised as Sustainable Entrepreneur

For decades now we have invested in Corporate Social Responsibility with People, Environment and Society as the pillars. In order to direct those efforts even more effectively, we entered in early 2022 into a project with Voka to obtain the “Charter for Sustainable Business”. Today, we can announce with pride, but at the same time with modesty, that Vanbreda has received recognition as a Sustainable Entrepreneur.

Going ahead with an action plan

After an analysis of the initiatives that already exist within the firm, we defined 14 action points in our themes of People, Environment and Society. Within a matter of one year, we went ahead with this very concrete and challenging action plan.

International recognition as Sustainable Entrepreneur

At the end of the action year, the work undertaken was assessed by a team of independent experts. We got the fantastic news that the jury recognises Vanbreda Risk & Benefits as a Sustainable Entrepreneur on the strength of our efforts. This recognition shows that we are committed to making a difference in the short and long term for you as employees, for the society in which we live, and for the environment.

Solidarity and insurance

Solidarity is a concept that is not unfamiliar to the world of insurance, which as a matter of fact is built on solidarity and providence: the insured pay a premium that is used to compensate for damage or loss, or to provide an income in times of financial need. As insurance brokers we are an important link in the value chain between companies and employees on the one hand and insurers on the other. Our core business therefore has important social added value. Moreover, our social responsibility reaches beyond our core business. We want to have an even greater positive social impact, which is why we must not stop at this recognition: it is just a starting point to remain committed to a more sustainable world, year after year.
