HITEC Luxembourg obtained the Label RE – Responsibility Europe (CSR Label)
Responsibility Europe is the label for companies and organizations wishing to give their social and environmental commitments international recognition. Created at the initiative of AFNOR Group (France), INDR (Luxembourg) and Ecoparc (Switzerland), Responsibility Europe brings together leading CSR labels that are demanding and pragmatic, demonstrate real added value and contribute to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
With the multiplicity of CSR labels and the ongoing work on non-financial information reporting, it has become essential to give a better readability and a more assertive positioning to CSR-labeled companies and organizations that go beyond self-assessment, rating, reporting or sectoral assessments.
The Responsibility Europe label
The Responsibility Europe label is distinguished by its demanding commitments:
- It is based on international standards such as ISO 26000, the international reference for corporate social responsibility, and on the 17 sustainable development objectives set by the UN.
- It guarantees that the labeled company or organization has been evaluated according to a transparent methodology and subjected to an on-site quality control by an independent third-party organization.
- It assesses the level of maturity and performance of companies and organizations, taking into account the expectations of society and the interests of stakeholders.
Issued by AFNOR in France, INDR in Luxembourg and Ecoparc in Switzerland, it adds international recognition to companies that have received the label in their respective countries, reinforcing the credibility and readability of their global actions and their social and environmental impact. Thus, the Responsibility Europe label becomes an argument of credibility and international competitiveness. To date, more than 500 companies and organizations have been awarded the label, and 2,500 are engaged in a CSR labeling process.
