Before presenting the award, an evaluation team composed of representatives of several environmental authorities visited ArcelorMittal Gent to verify whether the submitted Environmental Charter programme had been realised. The evaluation team also made certain that our organisation operates in accordance with environmental regulations.
Following the evaluation team’s report, the Environmental Charter evaluation committee decided to award the Environmental Charter to ArcelorMittal Gent. M. Jozef Dauwe, Deputy of the province of East Flanders and responsible for environment, and M. Geert Moerman, Managing Director of VOKA – the East Flanders Chambers of Commerce – presented the award at the Provincial Administrative Centre in Gent on 7 June 2012.
This award is highly valuable to ArcelorMittal Gent as it is a public recognition for our commitment towards sustainable development.
