BAM recognised as leader in Dutch benchmark for transparency
Bunnik, the Netherlands, 20 November 2014 – For the fifth consecutive year, Royal BAM Group has been awarded with a top 20 position on the Transparency Benchmark (Transparantiebenchmark) of the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, and has been declared one of the leaders by achieving a fourth place (2013: fifth). BAM is the highest scoring construction company.
The Transparency Benchmark is an annual research into the quality of sustainability reporting amongst the 500 largest companies in the Netherlands. The Transparency Benchmark was established to improve sustainability reporting. The Benchmark’s criteria have been adjusted in 2014 to fit in with new guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and the Framework for Integrated Reporting by the Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC).
The results of the Transparency Benchmark confirm that BAM describes relevant themes for society accurately and that the Group reports material information for its stakeholders transparently.
