Triginta’s Social Sustainability Vision with The Cornerstone

Triginta KLooster, sociale duurzaamheids meting met The Cornerstone.

Triginta has always been driven by a commitment to social sustainability, but we were eager to delve deeper and discover new ways to integrate this commitment into every aspect of our work. That’s where The Cornerstone stepped in, shining a light on the path forward.

Our collaboration began with an insightful workshop where stakeholders from various facets of our operations came together to share their experiences and perspectives. The Cornerstone facilitated this session with skill, paving the way for a comprehensive framework that would guide Triginta’s strategy for our social sustainability trajectory.

One of the immediate solutions identified was an innovative contract developed by The Cornerstone. This contract, when signed by our subcontractors, ensures that they uphold our standards for social sustainability. It’s a quick win that aligns our entire supply chain with our core values.

But we didn’t stop there. We initiated a series of conversations — asking pointed questions to workers on our construction sites, residents living near our projects, our partners, and even individuals residing in our completed developments. This direct engagement has been instrumental in gathering authentic data and gaining a real-time understanding of the social impact of our building sites.

 

In reviewing these policies and listening to the voices of our community, we’ve identified significant opportunities where Triginta can not only participate but lead in writing the narrative for social sustainability within the industry.

Triginta is not just constructing buildings; we’re building a legacy of positive social impact. With The Cornerstone’s expertise and a strategy rooted in real-world insights, we’re forging a future where every project we undertake contributes constructively to the social fabric of the communities we serve.

Join us as we continue to explore and expand our social sustainability initiatives. Together with The Cornerstone, we are committed to creating spaces that resonate with care, community, and long-term well-being.

Thomas More Students Evaluate Social Sustainability in Geel.

Meeting ven The Cornerstone met studenten van Thomas more om de sociale impact te meten.

In an innovative collaboration, students from Thomas More University were invited to assess the social sustainability of a new school built by the city of Geel. This initiative offered a hands-on learning experience for the students and provided valuable insights into the community impact of urban development projects.

The students embarked on a mission to understand the school’s influence on its surroundings. They conducted interviews with local residents to gauge the effectiveness of communication between the city and the community. Through these discussions, the students identified that while the school was a welcome addition, there were opportunities to enhance dialogue and engagement with those in the vicinity.

Furthermore, the students engaged with workers on the construction site to gather their perspectives on the working conditions and the social considerations taken into account during the building process. These firsthand accounts were crucial in painting a comprehensive picture of the project’s social impact.

Inspired by their findings, the students envisioned a platform that could assist companies in measuring and improving their social impact. The result is SocialImpact.be, a website dedicated to providing tools and resources for organizations striving to assess and amplify their positive social footprint.

SocialImpact.be aims to empower companies with practical tools to evaluate their projects, ensuring that social sustainability is not an afterthought but a fundamental component of their planning and development processes.

We invite companies and individuals alike to explore SocialImpact.be and join us in our commitment to fostering socially sustainable communities through mindful construction and inclusive practices.
