AWDC Wins Best Belgian Sustainability Report Award

04 december 2014

The 16th edition of the award ceremony for Best Belgian Sustainability Report took place on December 2, 2014. The Award is an initiative of the Belgian Institute of Registered Auditors. It encourages and rewards companies and organizations that, besides reporting on their economic and financial data, report on their activities in the framework of sustainable development in a transparent manner. AWDC is the proud winner in the category ‘other organizations’.
The jury found that AWDC’s very first sustainability report was a clear, well-structured report and did not shy away from addressing sensitive issues.
AWDC CEO Ari Epstein was honored to receive the award: "It gives me immense pleasure to accept this award on behalf of our organization. This was the Antwerp World Diamond Centre’s first sustainability report, and we meant for it to be a clear message to our industry. Like all other businesses and organizations that are present here today, AWDC and the Antwerp diamond sector have a major responsibility towards society.”
Ari Epstein believes this to be a logical evolution: "We owe it to our employees, our partners, our stakeholders and all the people and communities involved in the diamond chain to take the lead, and to strive for a sustainable diamond industry. Transparency, compliance and corporate social responsibility are the cornerstones of our policy, and assets that set Antwerp apart from other diamond centers."
