says Jan De Witte, Barco’s CEO.
In order to enable bright outcomes, Barco works hard to deliver the gold standard in every market. Via co-creation with customers, suppliers, peers and the academic world, the company can develop solutions, services and business models that deliver true customer value. In addition, by gradually transforming from a hardware company into an organization that combines hardware with software and services, Barco is shaping its offering to enable truly bright outcomes. The progress and impact of this transition is highlighted in the annual report.
Shaping sustainable impact
This year, sustainability has been integrated into Barco’s corporate strategy and steady progress was made in 2018. Jan De Witte confirms: “We want to move away from awareness to true engagement among employees to make sustainability an integral part of how we shape our business”. Special attention went to the Sustainability Report, which provides a clear ambition statement and 2020 targets as well as a detailed overview of Barco’s contribution to the Sustainable Development goals set by the UN.
Barco’s annual report is available as a PDF file on the Barco website or on issuu. The report is downloadable as a whole or per module. Interviews, business reviews and video footage can be found on a dedicated microsite. In line with its sustainability strategy, Barco chose to adopt printing on-demand: interested shareholders can request a printed copy.
