CSR report 2016

CSR steering group

On the back of the conclusions from the stakeholder dialogue, a CSR steering group was set up in October 2015. The steering group comprises several employees of  Beter Bed B.V., Matratzen Concord GmbH and the Works Council. The steering group meets every quarter and its key duties include establishing new medium-term targets, setting out improvements to CSR and streamlining CSR, ensuring it is consistent throughout the entire organisation.

The Management Board of Beter Bed Holding is ultimately responsible for both defining and implementing the CSR policy. The Chief Financial Officer is the chair of the steering group, guided by the consultancy firm MVOplossingen. The Management Board consists of the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer, and is accountable to the Supervisory Board for the policy it implements in which CSR plays a part. The specific CSR targets are presented by the Management Board to the Supervisory Board at the recommendation of the CSR steering group. Performance in view of the targets in general is periodically reported to the Supervisory Board.
