Since 1998, the Institute of Registered Auditors (IBR-IRE) organises the Awards for Best Belgian Sustainability Reports which encourage organisations to report transparently on sustainability issues by promoting the integration of sustainability information into their annual report and rewarding the best examples in Belgium.
It seems that organisations in Belgium have understood the significance of the changes brought about by the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) and the importance of preparing for it as this year’s turnout was unprecedented! A total of 65 organisations have submitted their reports to the contest and the Awards ceremony 2023 was followed by some 300 interested parties at BNP Paribas Fortis Head Office.
In addition to being read and evaluated by a Jury of experts from various backgrounds, all received sustainability reports are published here. Winners and remarkable reports of the edition are commented in the Trends of the edition.
For more info on the 2023 edition, see the Code of participation and the evaluation criteria together with additional guidance provided to the Jury members to help them on how to assess the various criteria.
