Corporate Social Responsibility

A vital part of our identity

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) can mean different things to different organizations. Most would define it as all of the initiatives or practices put in place by an organization to foster sustainability. Socially responsible companies need to be economically viable, have a positive impact on society, and respect and preserve the environment.

Building an organization that lasts

A socially responsible company goes beyond the profit motive. To delaware, CSR means that we try to leave the world a little better than we found it. Every day, the #peopleofdelaware help us to do exactly that.


realizing a dream for today, tomorrow and succeeding generations is not something you do overnight, and we know our responsibility goes beyond taking care of our own company - that's why CSR has become a vital part of our identity and our strategy
Jan Delaere - Founding Partner & Chairman

More than checking a box

Over the years, the delaware CSR task force has launched several initiatives and continues to do so on a regular basis. We truly believe that thanks to these efforts, we can have a positive impact on our broader environment.

However, expanding the product portfolio with customer-unique products – so-called ‘lot size one’ products – doesn’t have to radically change the supply chain operation. In order to demonstrate that, I want to invalidate some misconceptions which are currently labeled as truth by a large part of the market.

Can we freely ask our customers to provide their data for marketing purposes? Are your employees entitled to request your HR department for a deletion of some personal data?

The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) answers all of these questions.

Are augmented reality and virtual reality more than just a gimmick?

In today’s digital era, mobile and web apps took the business center stage. Through a variety of apps, business users have relevant information literally at their fingertips, any time, any place, anywhere. More recently, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) have also presented themselves as alternative ways of accessing information easily – but will these technologies become as mainstream as apps are today? I believe they will. Although they currently mainly evoke images of youngsters chasing Pokémon or women gaining inspiration in virtual fitting rooms, both technologies hold great promise in a B2B context as well.
