Our Sustainable Business Action plan

04.07.2017

DNS Belgium launches its Sustainable Business Action plan. The different actions we take in this context are broken down into five categories: Peace, People, Prosperity, Planet and Partnership. These are also the categories used by the UN for its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s)

The SDGs are promoted as the global sustainable development goals to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for everyone. The SGDs will be in force from 2015 to 2030. There are 17 goals and 169 targets

With our actions we want to support health and safety at work, sustainable consumption, circular economy, education, healthcare and entrepreneurship – also in the third world:

  • DNS Belgium will have a CO2 zero measurement draw up to map its carbon footprint  and adopt reducing and compensatory measures based on this.
  • For years we have also given financial and organisational support to Bike to Close the Gap, an event that raises funds to provide access to ICT to disadvantaged children and young adults in Europe and in developing countries.
  • Plants will be leased for our office in the short term.
  • Sustainability, transparency and CO2 emissions were decisive criteria in the choice of a new energy supplier.
  • We organised a sustainable personnel event and a zero carbon footprint event.
  • We migrated the registration platform for .be domain names to the AWS Cloud to continue working in a technologically innovative and sustainable way.

Four strategic pillars

All these actions are part of DNS Belgium’s wider sustainability approach. In 2016, we launched a strategic corporate social responsibility exercise, the theoretical framework of which was developed and the different projects defined in 2017. We focused on four strategic pillars: inspiring workplace, leader in security, digital awareness and sustainable chain.

When our efforts receive a positive evaluation by a team of independent experts for three consecutive years, DNS Belgium will be awarded the Voka Charter Sustainable Business in 2020  which, in turn, fits in with the sustainable development goals of the United Nations.
