Approach and its staff do not only strive to achieve a safer cyberworld, we also play an active role in society – that’s why we encourage and support initiatives with societal goals. Giving something back to the Community means a lot to us.
Approach defends a two-fold Corporate Social Responsibility strategy: helping with social welfare and operating with business ethics (including diminishing our impact on the environment).
Every year, we identify some social projects we want to support through volunteering or sponsorship actions. We also look to be aligned with this philosophy during our day-to-day actions. Some examples of projects that we support:
Sharing our expertise by supporting security hospitals challenges during Covid-19
Approach is endorsed as voluntary security service provider for our hospitals to help them face cyber threats and manage cyber incidents during the COVID19 crisis.
Think Pink : Race For The Cure
Help fighting breast cancer
Our employees and their family members have participated in the annual “Race For the Cure” organised by Think Pink Belgium.
Race for the Cure® is the world’s biggest sporting event for women’s health. In Europe, it helps breast cancer organisations and hospitals to collect funds and raise awareness. With 500,000 new diagnoses and 130,000 people who die of breast cancer every year in Europe, these funds are of vital importance.
Experiencing the magic of team spirit
Approach volunteers regularly gather their force to support initiatives that are important to them, such as the ‘Operation Thermos’.
For this initiative, Approach offered the food and 15 volunteers from our team cooked meals and distributed them to 150 homeless persons in the Botanique subway station in Brussels. From preparation to distribution, we did it with all our heart.
Such initiatives create a great team spirit experience and brings a lot of humanity. We recommend every organisation to take up this kind of initiatives.
Supporting good causes
Every year, Approach contributes to the Viva for Life experience, with a donation. And when possible we join partners challenges – as an example, the one organised by the Axis Parc Team in 2018.
Viva For Life is a Belgian association organising yearly initiatives to support children in need.
Improving ethical business
Approach is a member of SEDEX, one of the world’s leading ethical trade service providers, working to improve working conditions in global supply chains. SEDEX provides practical tools, services and a community network to help companies improve their responsible and sustainable business practices, and source responsibly.
We will continue to take social welfare actions and act internally with business ethics.
