For us - as a developer and producer of exhibitions, exhibits and display cases - sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) are very important. We bring stories to life visually and create an optimal visitor experience. An experience that allows visitors to form their own opinions on the topic of the exhibition they’re visiting. Telling stories about current issues in society and explaining how technology works contributes to people’s understanding of the world. For we are convinced that people get a fuller picture of reality if we not only inform them, but if they can also feel, experience and immerse themselves in it.
“We believe that when you understand the world better, you also take care of it better, with more awareness”
Not only in storytelling, but also in how we work as developers and producers, we want to leave the world a better place for the next generation. We do this through the following:
Bruns’ policy is to travel as environmentally friendly as possible by using carpooling and making the fleet electrical/hybrid. Video conferencing is organised to minimise travel and emissions. For regular transport, we work with an international ‘green’ transport company.
Bruns strives to fully integrate and test all exhibition components prior to installation. This means that both the transport and on-site construction are as efficient as possible.
Bruns uses materials and products that are provided with a certificate or statement that clearly shows the traceability and composition of the product.
Bruns applies the highest environmental requirements and standards in its processes. And we expect the same from our suppliers. The aspect of sustainability is taken into account in the selection of suppliers.
Bruns is ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and VCA certified. With regard to quality, safety and health, we guarantee the highest standards.
Bruns attaches great value to the ‘People Planet Profit’ philosophy. We have enhanced this by defining guidelines within Bruns’ policy to ensure the best possible implementation.
Bruns is located in national monument De Ploeg, where we have a visitor centre with showroom that is open to the public. The visitor centre is open on weekdays between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. and is free of charge. We facilitate an exhibition space for both established and starting artists and designers.
Our building, national monument De Ploeg, is surrounded by 13 hectares of the Mien Ruys park. The park has a public character and is an extension of the visitor centre. Bruns encourages the organisation of public events, to give the park a more prominent role in the town centre of Bergeijk. By increasing community involvement, the park maintains its lively character and its cultural-historical value continues to be brought to the attention of the wider general public. Concrete examples:
Bruns is a family business with 90% of its employees living in the vicinity. Bruns attaches great importance to good employment practices and we look after our employees well. We have an active staff association that represents the interests of all employees and organises social/cultural events.
Bruns gives back part of its operating profit to society in the form of sponsorships and donations to local initiatives.
