Massive improvement in Transparency benchmark14 December 2017
In the Transparency benchmark produced by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate, Royal FloraHolland improved its position in one year from 135 to 79. This leap is due to making the chain and stakeholders more visible in our reporting.
The Transparency benchmark is an annual study by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate of the content and quality of social reporting. We are participating in this project because we like encouraging transparency about our social activities. This allows our members, customers and other interested parties to form a good idea about our social impact. This suits us as a cooperative and our binding role in the horticultural sector.
Improvement of 56 places in one year
In 2016 we participated for the first time, and achieved the rank of 135. In total, around 500 companies join in. Our participation in 2016 provided a good insight into the possibilities for improvement. What did we do differently this year?
- Our chain and stakeholders have been made visible in our reporting
- Our sustainability strategy was included for the first time in the annual report
- The guidelines of the transparency benchmark for reporting were followed completely
On that basis we scored better in 2017. The main prize, the Kristal, went this year to the Royal Bam Group.
In 2020 we want to be in the top 50. But what is really important is that we continue to discuss with you, our members and customers, our activities regarding CSR and to improve them together.
