Being a partner of an NGO, REIBEL has often been asked to improve current systems and to find solutions in respect of numerous sectors. The first milestone of this commitment to renewable energy was initiated in 2002. We were requested by an NGO (non-governmental organisation) to assist in a development project in an isolated village where a suitable response was required to improve the situation.
This eventually resulted in the set-up of REIBEL’s “renewable energy” department, BELPOWER. The expertise, products and services of this department have benefitted our other clients. Additional publicity was generated by the REIBEL’s introduction on the Brussels exchange market (Euronext), in November 2005, which also added to the success of the organization.
In 2009, BELPOWER became a 100% subsidiary of the REIBEL S.A. group. It is actively involved in the field of study, design, sale and the installation of means to generate power with the help of renewable resources, as well as supplying power in Belgium under the name of BELPOWER International S.A. and its subsidiaries.
We demonstrated by choosing to invest time and money in BELPOWER that sustainable development is the third of our four company’s core business values.
Sustainable development, ethics and compliance of social norms have always been our principal concern. This is why REIBEL has directed its long-term policies in such a way that it seeks to reconcile the protection of the environment and economic development on a daily basis. We are deeply convinced that it is essential in order to support sustainability of our company. This means specifically:
INVEST TODAY TO CREATE A BETTER TOMORROW
Your wish to create a better tomorrow and contribute to a sustainable development is our number one priority.
We use sustainable development to systematically reinvest a part of our profits in the development of these activities (renewable energy, supply of 100% green power), create new jobs and respect the environment.
