Social aspects are an important part of our CSR policy. We actively work on being an equal opportunities employer and invest in the training of the specialists of the future. Women now constitute over 40% of our workforce and this share is continuing to grow. Several positions in our management team are also held by women.
We invest financially in various social activities; for example, items such as nest boxes are made for us by a community workshop and we regularly employ people who would otherwise find it difficult to find work. We contribute to training by offering internships, teaching courses, participating in professional advisory committees (for example, Van Hall Larenstein, Hogeschool Zeeland) and participating in various working groups, including for the Dutch branch organization Netwerk Groene Bureaus
. These investments are not only beneficial for ourselves, but allow us to share our knowledge and skills with the wider community and the ecologists of the future. Finally, we follow the code of conduct of the Dutch branch organization Netwerk Groene Bureaus
