Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) as a company means taking responsibility for the effects of business activities on people and the environment. You make conscious choices to strike a balance between People, Planet and Profit. At GNS Nederland CSR has been consciously and explicitly embedded in business operations for years. Measurable goals are set every year and measures are taken to achieve them. No matter how small the individual results sometimes seem, when added up we always achieve surprising improvements in the area of the 3 Ps every year.

CSR is now so natural at GNS that it is not considered burdensome but rather motivating. Here are a few examples of how we, at GNS, experience and implement CSR:

  • Asking for fuel efficiency is not experienced as punishment but leads to healthy mutual competition with the environment ultimately being the winner. Naturally, all our company vehicles are equipped with Euro 6 or electric engines.
  • Taking safety measures does not limiting our colleagues but gives them the belief that we care about them.
  • Asking suppliers and customers to contribute together to a better environment for example by asking to correspond by email and  to collect orders up to 1 shipment.
  • Taking responsibility when it comes to reducing toxic substances in products and processes. Good for people and the environment. Read our statements here when it comes to RoHS (Restriction of use of certain Hazardous Substances) and REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals).
  • Taking safety precautions is not working against our people, but gives them the conviction that we are careful with them.
  • Not only separate waste but also think about how we can reduce waste and how we can reuse items.
  • Making agreements with suppliers about the way of packaging and the use of environmentally friendly packaging materials.
  • And of course, solar panels, LED lighting and the heating a bit lower ….

Besides the “hard side”, GNS also takes its responsibility when it comes to the social environment. For example, where possible, work is placed with sheltered employment services and we support associations and organisations in sporting, social and cultural areas.

CSR: natural right?
