Sustainable Development Policy 2020

PRACSIS is a Brussels-based communications and public relations agency that offers targeted and tailored communication strategies across the globe. Its activities include stakeholder engagement campaigns, the organisation of professional conferences, events and exhibitions, as well as large websites, print production, press and social media coverage.

PRACSIS has implemented a management system which ensures that all its operations, on its premises and at the events it organises, are guided by principles of sustainability. These principles—integrity, transparency, stewardship, and inclusivity—are present in every action, activity, project, and managerial decision.

PRACSIS is committed to continuously improving its sustainability performance by:

  • Taking steps to prevent pollution and achieve more efficient use of natural resources (mainly energy, water and paper);
  • Taking measures to reduce overall CO2 emissions (mainly from buildings, transport and travel);
  • Encouraging waste prevention in all operations and maximizing recycling and reuse of unavoidable waste;
  • Incorporating sustainability criteria into the procurement processes of goods and services;
  • Providing good working conditions to ensure the safety, health and well-being of all staff members;
  • Ensuring that staff, subcontractors and suppliers are afforded equal opportunity regardless of race, religion, gender, and sexual orientation;
  • Supporting the economic development of the communities in which it operates through close partnership with local agencies;
  • Complying with legislation and regulations that are applicable to sustainable development issues;
  • Stimulating sustainable behaviour of all permanent and temporary personnel of PRACSIS, as well as subcontractors, partners and other stakeholders through training, information and awareness-raising actions;
  • Evaluating the effectiveness of the actions undertaken and applying a principle of continuous improvement to everything PRACSIS does.

The Sustainability Policy is reviewed on an annual basis in order to ensure that it reflects PRACSIS’s commitment and accurately communicates its main sustainability goals.
