A new governance structure for our sustainability strategy
In 2021 we created a new sustainability governance structure within Beckers: Beckers Sustainability Council (BSC), a global cross-functional leadership team, and Global Stream Teams that will govern our sustainability activities.
Formalizing the global sustainability structure
The newly created Beckers Sustainability Council takes the baton from the previous Sustainability Committee. It is formally the highest sustainability governance body within Beckers and reports directly to the Global Support Committee (GSC).
The members of the BSC come from across the different functions and are the direct link between the Global Stream Teams and the GSC. The Global Sustainability Director chairs the Council that consists of CTO, CHRO, COO, VP Business Controlling, Global Sustainability Controller, Global Product Sustainability Director, Global Communications Director, VP Global Sustainable Industrial Development, Global Director for Health & Safety, Global Sustainability Expert, Environment and Energy Manager and the South Europe Coil Coating Business VP.
The BSC members are responsible for strategy and framework development, stakeholder engagement and alignment. They monitor the 2030 Sustainability Strategy progress, KPIs and actions, follow up on the three streams and their associated projects, and help set the annual Sustainability Contract, that is proposed to the Board of Directors and signed by the Executive Committee. The BSC also functions as the jury for the Beckers Sustainability Awards.
