Sustainability governance

R&D, Quality and Sustainability Director

As Group R&D, Quality and Sustainability Director, Annick De Poorter is the custodian of our sustainability vision. As a member of the executive management team, she is driving the implementation of the sustainability strategy together with her executive team colleagues.

Roles and Responsibilities

Roles and responsibilities for embedding our sustainability strategy have been shared across departments. We think this integrated approach is the key to managing our sustainability challenges successfully, rather than appointing dedicated sustainability officers at an individual plant level. Embedding sustainability throughout Ontex is a shared responsibility, so we have revised our approach to owning and managing it across the organization. Working together towards solutions

Sustainability Steering Committee

The Sustainability Steering Committee consists of four members of the executive team who meet four times a year. It monitors progress and makes the decisions that are needed as we continue to implement our sustainability strategy more broadly across the Ontex Group.

Health and Safety Steering Committee

The Health and Safety Steering Committee consists of four members of our executive team. The purpose of the committee is to enable quick health and safety decision-making and to speed up the shift towards a strong safety culture at Ontex.
