RSB Governance structure

Responsibility for RSB is fully integrated into our activities, led by senior management from strategy to delivery. Our CEO Erik Oostwegel spearheads our RSB commitment and discusses strategic relevance with i.a. the Supervisory Board. We walk the talk by including these aspects in our projects as well as our own operations. Business Line and Corporate Group Directors all have responsibility to incorporate RSB into their activities, supported by sustainability managers in the business. In addition, we have a network of internal ambassadors who help to create awareness among our employees.

Our Responsible and Sustainable Business Policy Statement, RSB Charter, and key ambitions for the development of the company are evaluated annually. The ambitions have been translated by businesses and corporate groups to address their specific contribution. Regional Management Boards and Resident Directors take responsibility for local RSB Plans and Actions which are also based on the RSB Charter.

RSB is managed at a functional level across our strategic and operational areas, with responsibility rolling up to executive level. The Responsible & Sustainable Business Working Group serves as the central coordinating body for our Responsible Business strategy, benchmarking and reporting. Chaired by our Corporate Director Communications & Brand in 2020, it includes representation from senior leaders and specialists.
