De Boer Staal and De Boer Snijbedrijf are CSR-certified companies. By fulfilling the criteria for the CSR certificate De Boer Staal and De Boer Snijbedrijf showed that corporate social responsibility is part of the company policy. But CSR (corporate social responsibility) does not stop with the acquisition of a certificate. If sustainable results are to be achieved, each corporate decision must be a balance between people, the environment and the company interest.
CSR is a form of business in which a company tries to strike a balance between people, the planet (environment) and economic performance (profit). The right balance leads to better results for the company and society as a whole.
In order to determine whether a company is conducting its business sustainably and responsibly, the Metaalunie has developed the CSR monitor in collaboration with Stichting Adviescentrum Metaal. This CSR monitor is based on NEN ISO 26000, the international guidelines for social responsibility (ISO SR). Using the CSR monitor, De Boer Staal and De Boer Snijbedrijf are assessed on the following points: the environment, working conditions, human rights, fair operating practices, commitment and end-user interests.
