2018 Novacap Sustainable Development Trophies Awards Ceremony #1

Since 2014, Novacap organized CSR-SD Trophies at Group level. In September 2018 occurred the fifth edition in presence of all executive managers of the group. This event aims at awarding relevant projects regarding their sustainability impacts:

Projects were eligible in 5 categories: Safety, Social & Societal, Environment, Innovation and Economic. 3 projects are nominated and 1 winner were rewarded in each category

Each year jury is established and chaired by Sophie Flak, President of Novacap Corporate Social Responsability Committee. The jury seleciton criteria relied on the 12 commitments framework defined in Novacap SD Strategy.

 

 

moreover, “implementation criteria” were also considered:

  • Method used and implementation quality
  • Commitment of stakeholders and employees participation
  • Ability to be transposed within the Group
  • Clarity of the communication / documentation

CSR-SD trophies participation shows a successful involvement of Novacap employees. For 5 years, around 200 projects were submitted with more than 20% of collaborators involved.
