Under the theme “Together We Build Sustainably” the BME ESG Roadmap outlines our ambitions on the most important topics, the targets we have set, and how we plan to achieve them.
Owning one of the largest building products distribution platforms in Europe puts BME in a unique position to leverage its scale and drive more sustainable and responsible business practices across its entire value chain. With the ultimate ambition to become a leading driver of sustainability in the building sector, we created our ESG Roadmap based on three areas of focus:
1. Growing responsibly
2. Enabling a sustainable value chain
3. Securing a great and safe place to work
To define our ESG vision and prioritized themes, we conducted an extensive value chain analysis to assess where we could make the biggest impact, benchmarking ourselves within the sector. We also carried out stakeholder interviews with BME employees, customers, suppliers, and investors (see more information in Appendix of our Sustainability Report 2023). Finally, we aligned our strategies and ambitions to the Global Sustainable Development Goals (‘SDGs’) and the European Union Sustainability Agenda (e.g. EU Green Deal).
In our ESG roadmap, we outline our ambitions on the most important topics, the targets we have set, and how we plan to achieve them.
