At Simac, we feel very in tune with our surroundings. Our quest for continuity is based upon much more than simply financially safeguarding the business. Both our mother company, Simac Techniek, and Simac ICT Belgium care a lot about the wellbeing of our staff members, our customers, our neighbors and society in general. Our dedication to the world around us is demonstrated in a number of fields.
In 2018, we were awarded the ISO 14001:2015 certificate for environmental management. Working towards better environmental performance is a key element in our Corporate Social Responsibility strategy. ISO 14001:2015 helps Simac set environmental goals, make them transparent and embed them within our core processes. This is beneficial to all of our stakeholders. Environmental concerns are also among the design principles for our new building in Haasrode, where we will be making significant, future-oriented, environmental investments. This new building is slated for completion in 2021.
Support for good causes
Simac Hart is a company-wide program that donates 250 euro to ten good causes every quarter. Supported causes are proposed by the Simac staff themselves. An important criterion is that employees who suggest the good cause must themselves have some form of direct involvement. In 2019, Simac ICT Belgium initiated 9 out of 40 Simac Hart projects.
Besides this company-sponsored program, several Simac ICT Belgium employees set up activities themselves to help make the world a better place. For a number of years, Simac personnel have participated in Climbing for Life, an organization that combines the Belgian passion for cycling with fundraising efforts to support medical research.
