Organisor

The Institute of Registered Auditors (IBR-IRE) is a professional organization which aims at coordinating the training and ongoing organization of a body of specialists capable of performing the function of registered auditor with every guarantee of competence, independence and professional integrity. The Institute attends to the accurate execution of the engagements entrusted to its members in accordance with the law. 

The goals of the Awards for Best Belgian Sustainability Reports are:

  • to stimulate organizations to report on their activities with regard to sustainable development and to propose guidelines on best practices in this respect;
  • to encourage external assurance of non-financial information by a registered auditor listed with IBR-IRE;
  • to increase organizations’ awareness of the use of reporting on sustainability issues as a tool to help them engage in a transparent and effective dialogue with stakeholders;
  • to boost integration of societal responsibility beyond organisations and to reward transparent and relevant communication on sustainable development.

The Awards 2016 were organised with the support of the Federal Institute for Sustainable Development (FIDO/IFDD) and the event was hosted by ING Belgium. The Institute of Registered Auditors (IBR-IRE) would like to thank ING group for its welcome and the FIDO/IFDD, as well as The Shift, the Union of Self-Employed Entrepreneurs (UNIZO), the Union of the Middle Classes (UCM), the Antwerp Management School (AMS), the Walloon Union of Companies (UWE), the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Wallonia (CCI Wallonie), the Brussels Enterprises Commerce and Industry (Beci), the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Eupen, Malmedy and Sankt Vith (IHK), MVO Vlaanderen and the Flemish network of enterprises (VOKA) for their cooperation and support to this initiative.
