Corporate Social Responsibility

A vital part of our identity

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) can mean different things to different organizations. Most would define it as all of the initiatives or practices put in place by an organization to foster sustainability. Socially responsible companies need to be economically viable, have a positive impact on society, and respect and preserve the environment.

Building an organization that lasts

A socially responsible company goes beyond the profit motive. To delaware, CSR means that we try to leave the world a little better than we found it. Every day, the #peopleofdelaware help us to do exactly that.


realizing a dream for today, tomorrow and succeeding generations is not something you do overnight, and we know our responsibility goes beyond taking care of our own company - that's why CSR has become a vital part of our identity and our strategy
Jan Delaere - Founding Partner & Chairman

More than checking a box

Over the years, the delaware CSR task force has launched several initiatives and continues to do so on a regular basis. We truly believe that thanks to these efforts, we can have a positive impact on our broader environment.

Hands-on tips to protect your sensitive data

The days are long gone that you could only exchange files with another user by means of a USB stick, an external hard drive or even, for those of us who are over 40, a floppy disk. Today the internet is omnipresent and allows you to send files to someone else without even getting out of your chair.
