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.
delaware originates from a dream: to build a long-standing and sustainable organization that can be passed on to the generations to come. Realizing that dream, however, is not something you do overnight. We can only continue dreaming when we also take responsibility for our company’s relationship with the social and ecological environment.
Our purpose is to enable our people, our company and our customers to reach their full potential, while creating a positive impact in a challenging world. That is why CSR is a vital part of our identity and our strategy. It is part of who we are.
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 strategyJan Delaere - Founding Partner & Chairman

With still more than six years to go until SAP support for ECC software comes to a halt, what’s the pressure to move now? Large scale IT migration projects can be costly, time-consuming and if not managed effectively, result in significant downtime.
But if we were only ever to review the risks, we’d never reap the rewards. Legacy systems are often cited as the key problem for business struggling with stagnating growth. In ever-growing markets and under the pressure of an always demanding customer base, there is a desperate need to closely connect customer data to operations in a closed loop.
