shaping a sustainable future
Victor Buck Services’ journey in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) began in June 2011, when we joined the United Nations Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative in support of achieving the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. Victor Buck Services plays an active role in the collective effort to build a better and more sustainable future for all.
At a national level, Victor Buck is an active member of IMS (Inspiring More Sustainability), Luxembourg’s leading network of companies involved in CSR.
The pillars of Victor Buck Service’s CSR strategy
Our CSR strategy takes into account the "triple bottom line" (people, planet, profit) and bases itself on three pillars.
Performance, governance and stability
What does it mean? Responsible growth:
- A profitable company that creates value for our customers, our shareholders and ourselves
- A strong and resilient business model that is able to adapt to the changing technological and business landscape
What do we do?
ISO 27001 certification: Building a strong and resilient business model implies securing the information that is entrusted to us by our clients. We are ISO 27001 certified.
ISO 22301 certification: We have put business continuity best practice at the forefront of what we do. We maintain a management system to protect against, reduce the likelihood of the occurrence of, prepare for, respond to and recover from disruptions when they arise. This enables us to provide a premium level of services to our clients no matter the circumstances.
What does it mean? Environmental impact reduction:
- Reduction of our direct environmental footprint
- Reduction of the environmental footprint of our products and services
What do we do?
Commitment to zero single-use plastic: As a member of IMS Luxembourg - Inspiring More Sustainability, Victor Buck Services is a proud supporter and signatory of the "Zero Single-Use Plastic” Manisfesto. Since 2018, we have implemented several key changes in our lunchrooms and coffee corners in an effort to eliminate single-use plastic items and offer sustainable alternatives. More information about our best practices here.
Smart waste management: We manage our waste sustainably. Our headquarters in Capellen is certified with the SuperDrecksKëscht® fir Betriber label, a recognised Luxembourgish quality label granted to businesses that have adopted an environmentally friendly waste management plan. Find our label here.
Sustainable paper use: As one of the main players of the digital printing industry, we value a sustainable paper use. We are FSC® certified: the paper we use comes from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits. (Licence code: FSC® C103218)
100% green electricity: We supply our Luxembourg offices with 100% certified green electricity produced in Europe, including 50% in regional power plants. The electricity we use is produced from hydro, solar, wind or biomass sources.
Eco-friendly and recyclable Printed Electronics: We produce recyclable antenna inlays using an innovative eco-friendly process. We are committed to a lowest possible carbon footprint by avoiding transports and sourcing regional or local, wherever possible. Know more about Printed Electronics.
Employee and community engagement
What does it mean? Promotion of employee development and engagement:
- A safe and healthy place to work
- Diversity and inclusion
- A learning organization
- Involvement in local community improvement initiatives
What do we do?
Equality between men and women: In 2018, Victor Buck Services was rewarded with a Positive Actions Award from the Luxembourgish Ministry of Equal Opportunities. The award acknowledges our commitment, since 2014, to equality between men and women, and the transposition into a concrete action plan.
We apply a gender blindness policy, free of all forms of discrimination (even positive discrimination) when recruiting to guarantee equality of treatment and opportunities. This has resulted in a natural diversity built on passionate, dynamic and talented individuals. This starts at the very top: our board of directors is composed of one woman and two men from POST, our 100% shareholder, and our management committee consists of one woman and one man.
Culture of empowering people: At Victor Buck Services we believe our success relies on each employee’s empowerment. We invest in employees’ development to encourage curiosity and develop creative solutions. Like the majority of the companies in Luxembourg, a significant number of our employees comes from France (38%), Belgium (26%) or Germany (3%) to work on our premises: employees benefit from a flexible schedule to cope with commuter traffic. Additionally, 15% of the staff work part time either combined with parental leave or simply as regular working schedule. In 2020, our employees benefited of more than 1700 hours of training which represents an average of 8 hours per employee per year. Read more about how we empower people.
